Did it come with the frame or did you just get a door?

You wasted $50. What you need to install it (even if you could find it) will cost more than a new door.

There's a reason it was a deal, no frame.

This may sound like a dumb question but the wheels goes on the bottom or on top? My first time doing this.

OK , you say you bought a "door". Install it square & level ........

If you didn't buy a door , but bought a door slab , not sure what you should do .

PS: If this is the dumbest thing you have done this year , I gar-own-tee I could top it (in spades !!!)

I pay $25 each for used tempered glass panels that I use for glass deck railings.

You have 4 of them so there is some value to what you have.
