                                    GD1  GD2
        Our friends, Keith, Larry, and Greg helped us install the garage doors.

Oops...something isn't quite right...but easily fixed.         

                                The door is first tacked into place.  GD4

The door has to be leveled.  Chip checks the directions, which are truly awful.

Side rails are installed.                                          Clada figures these brackets out.

Then the spring is installed, thanks to Keith's special tool.

                       The door worked fine.                                                Too bad one of the panels came dented. 
                                                                                           It took 8 weeks to get another one, and it was the wrong size.
                                                                                  Then it took another 8 weeks to get the right one...that's life in the islands...

We relaxed on the South patio after the garage door was installed.  Life is good.
