Yea, that is very nice work. What are the (Bridges) since I don't know the proper term that protect the wire bundles at the door hinge? Those are pretty trick.

Thanks for the kind words. The Things carrying the wires to the door are just pieces of drag chain. I did some more work tonight. I set up the computer and hooked it up with the parrallel cable to the control panel. And plugged the power supply into the control panel. I got a little spark around the first relay that I have to investigate. But I expected something to be wrong. It is just too much not to make a mistake... being an amature. It's getting close to having something move.

I made my first cut yesterday. I still have some loose ends to tie up but I couldn't wait to cut something. I'll take some more pics soon and post them.

Wow, good for you.
And hell yes, I think you should be making test runs as soon as you safely can, work any bugs out before you start buttoning it up & then have to re-open the wound.
