They split in the middle. For the returning side I used an I beam the width of the garage to mount the door running gear and motor on to. For the End Wall Side was easy and able to mount the track and motor directly onto the wall.
Works great.

Just to say I've had a pair of Garador doors for about two years and been very pleased with them. Another positive for me is that they have a relativity tight fit against the ground and are sealed up the sides so keep drafts and vermin out of the garage. The larger door, which is 5m wide, we converted from two smaller up-and-overs although we did need an RSJ fitted as the central pillar was load bearing.
We have two large and two small remotes which can all operate both doors.

My ideal house would be a couple of rooms, one to eat in, one to sleep and ..um.. rest? in (plus one to perform one's toilet in), and the rest would be ALL GARAGE. Four bays minimum, all with double height. Plus rooms off for storage of spare parts, little used machinery, essential plant (compressor back up generator), and a volatiles room. And a room for relaxing in, with a few chairs, a screen to view the DVDs of restoration techniques etc. This room ought also to be big enough to house the one concours quality or otherwise highly significant car, should it ever be acquired.

SWMBO thinks she needs a room in the house as well, which would not be called a sewing room. And then we worry about accomodating visitors (although why anyone would want to visit me when I'm up to my armpits in axle grease is anybody's guess).

Chatting with a bricklayer doing some work for me and he told of a gentleman nearby who, quite a few years ago, had a large barn conversion. The requirement was for a large picture window from his bedroom looking into the next part of the barn which had been made into his garage.

He was able to lie in his bed and look at his, genuine, D Type.

Will that do Chris?

A garage fit for a D-Type, and the requisit D, would do very nicely indeed.

Now where is that lottery ticket?

But the D Type wouldn't be as practical for popping down to Tescos for the shopping Chris.
I can't even imagine one being taken on the public roads much. Not a genuine one, seen a couple of replicas.
