I had your situation - an existing crack in a door.  I removed the interior
panels and managed to get the fiberglass cloth and liquid on the inside of the
crack w/o removing the skin.

  Did you mean to say before the area has been painted, because I doubt there
would be much of a crack (or stress tear) before  the skins were assembled as
a door and had the vent window 'tugged on" over a period of time. Also its
really important that you drill a .06 or so hole at the lowest point of the so
called "crack of doom" to halt any furthur tearing.
