I've been playing with the doors this past week. I shortened and fitted one of the two and you know what, Val was right, it's working fine, no need for extra weight. It still needs fine adjustment and I haven't yet figured out how to install the motor but I'm happy with the result so far.

Panels needed removal of 1.35m.

Rest of the structure needed only minor modifications.

Inside view,

and outside. Not bad I say :smt007

Well, getting the motors on was the real pain in the @$$. Both doors working fine manually but there was no room for the motor and rail assemblies because a concrete beam is in the way. After considering all the scenarios I could come up with, I ended with this:

Image

The plan was to make a 5cm hole through the 25cm concrete beam. The motor assembly would be then mounted to the ceiling beyond the beam and use a 2.5m rod to connect the runner to the door. A pivoting point was needed at the end of the rod so a few rails and rollers were installed too. If this description is not clear enough, I hope the pictures explain the details.

25cm length, 5cm diameter.
Image

That's the motor on the other side.
Image

I tried a 1" pipe as a rod and after I saw it could handle the situation without any bending when pushing the door to close, I left it there.
Image

That's the pivoting point with the needed structure. It seems I haven't taken any pictures of the other side yet (pipe to motor) :smt009
Image
Image
Image

I also had to separate the control unit from the rail and also cut a bit off the rail as it was a very tight fit,
Image

and also maneuver a sewage pipe around the rail.
Image

A look from the outside. I've been dreaming of this picture for the last 13 years. What a feeling.
Image

And you know how one thing leads to another, in order to install the motors and their ancillaries, I had to remove all the lighting from the ceiling. Also both motors need power and why not add a few more power outlets to the garage. Tomorrow an update on the new garage wiring :smt016 Off to bed now :smt015
