Last Sunday morning made a 65 mile trip and pickup a steel Oh door 12 X 12. One door with extra panel and all the hardware for the second door. Replaced a sliding door in the machine shed with it. Used 5 panels to make a 12' X 9' door as the panels were about 21" wide. Cut 4' off the side track and frame to be sure I had head room. Went fairly well for one guy doing it alone as nothing is light weight in a commercial door. Those pair of double torsion spring are a real beast to get adjusted even. Door came out of a closed bay in a car wash so a lot of things had rust on them, including the springs. Really had to oil them up so the coils would slide by each other during the tightening. Opens and closes nice. Now to wait for the weather to warm back up (32° this morning) so I can remove the sliding door and put the header in and close off the top section. Had a time to get that top roller adjusted and positioned so it would close the door and not bind on the lower panel when raised. Sure glad this wasn't my first OH door install.
Sorry about the picture quality as the CFL's were slow coming up to brightness this morning. Usually have a door open for light.
