So a few weeks back, the extension spring on the door where my Camaro is parked broke. That’s led to one thing after another...but today, I got the new opener partially installed.

Now I have two insulated steel doors, and two of the Ryobi openers (which got them sued by Chamberlain for patent infringement), and my neurotic tendency to over-engineer everything.

Example: The drop straps are going to be replaced with angle iron verticals and angle iron bracing. In fact, the two runners between the floor joists weren’t even there with the old opener.

At least I’m getting my $20 out of the hacksaw I bought.
