Think you could post a couple of pics?

LOL! well here's some before pics: https://picasaweb.google.com/1137698...eat=directlink

The concurrent project to replace the rotted out bottom plates you see in the pics is what lead to the then believed non-standard garage door opening... in case you were wondering
