This is really cool to see unfold. I just drove through Dallas this past Saturday and would've loved to see this. But... just came from Tulsa headed to Houston and was already tired and wanted to beat that weather that was on the way.

Slow going, but that seems to be the common case- it's sad how hard it is to find someone that actually wants to work and then follows through....

I totally understand your issue, it is hard to find contractors that are willing to take on a small job for a one time customer.
Good ones are tied up with builders that keep them busy, till they're not...
This happened to me in 2009, I closed my Cabinet shop when the bottom fell out of new housing.
Show us those doors when they are in!

Finished up- really nice job on the fit. The doors are chain-host operated. The doors help dampen the road noise considerably.
