Removing outer door skin

Finally starting on rebuilding the Altima, and it's time to buy new bodyparts for it. How hard is it to remove the actual outer metal door skin (not the door itself) and replace it with a new one? The one on the car now has a rather large crease and tear right above the door handle (can't be repaired) and I'm trying to shave down body shop costs - it's only about 1/3 of the price to have the individual parts painted, rather than having the shop do everything.

Neither quite stock.

That's what I'll be doing. I just looked, and the inner and outer part of the door are one piece
