    I am interested in installing an automatic door on my coup, but the two doors that are on it open out and down. Will the D20 "add-a-motor" work on that type of door somehow? Maybe adding an additional pulley? Has anyone done this before?
    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    I'm sorry I am familiar with the automatic doors, and don't know anyone who has them. More responders will be coming, and maybe some of them will know. Can you contact the manufacturer by email and ask?
