Vinyl Siding Shed Doors (Horizontal)??

I have a 10' x 8' storage shed which I am installing Horizontal Vinyl siding on. I also have double doors on front of 10' wide shed - these doors are each 2' wide x 6' high. I also plan to install the same Double Dutch 4" horizontal siding on the doors into Vinyl J channel.

Problem #1:
My problem is that the door bottoms are 2" above where the Wall siding starts. I want the siding to line up horizontally and was planning to cut 2" off the bottom of the Door panels and have them sit in J channel. This means that the bottom panels on each door will not be locked in a starter strip. Do you see any problems or have any suggestions?

Problem #2:
I am also considering installing some Vinyl material on each door and adjacent wall on the side where the hinges are and then installing J channels on each side but set back so the J channels will not jam against each other when the doors are opened. Do you have a better suggestion for this matter?

You might be able to stabilize the bottoms, if needed, by attaching double sided adhesive foam underneath the bottom edge to keep it from flapping.

You could install hinges with wider plates so that the point where the door swings enables it to clear the other obstructions by extending out past the surface more.
