          How long did it take to do the update?
          Where did you have it done?
          $$$?
          Is the kit available for any DIYers?
          Alex here. As I understand it, the kit can be ordered from VerticalDoors Motorsports of Temecula. Thes include hinges, that replace the stock hinges. I presume the installers have some sort of jigs to keep the doors in place while the hinges go on, but maybe not. Remove the doors and hinges and the electrical wiring and connectors from the doors, which might involve a lot of labor or might not depending upon your technical expertise, tools, work tables, benches, etc.. Torque values for hinges with proper bits and torque wrench all likely needed. There are outfits in Forida, Texas, Arizona and California that are directly involved in the installation. Go to EikonMotorsports.com of Arizona (1-800-339-6544 and ask for Jessica, if you would like information from the same company that will be installing my vertical doors. Tim is one of the main installers at Eikon. Temecula in California Wine country also has a Vertical Doors location which is their own business. There are maps that show that there at now qualified installation sites all over the United states, so anyone who wants these, can get them done. Thanks, Alex
