    Here's a picture of the top panel done.
    We've cut a lot of styro using the table saw but like your kitchen knife there is a lot of "fluff" x 10 or more. Makes accurate cuts, though!

    When I worked on a construction site, we used an exacto knife with the blade extended as far out as possible. I still use that method and it doesn't leave any mess. Just draw your guide lines and start sawing, being careful to keep the blade at right angles to your cut.

    I have used a bare hack saw blade many times and it works great. For bigger cuts I have used my table saw with good results.

    I just used my utility knife and a straight edge to cut some that I put in. I have read a suggestion to sharpen the side edge of a drywall taping knife and use that to cut the styrofoam. The thickness of a kitchen knife is what makes using them a pain in thick styrofoam. Rick

    Here's my garage door all dry fitted and ready to install.

    I ended up using the kitchen knife for the rest of the styrofoam just because it was out there.

    From now on I will only buy cars that are a silver/grey color. Then I can make all body repairs with Duct Tape.

    If anyone was wondering, installing a garage door is not a good project to attempt alone. When juggling loose track, a large door panel that has nothing convenient to hold on to, and wheels that fall out of the slots if the door is even slightly tilted, it's easy to run out of hands. I gave it a few different tries on Saturday night. I finally had to quit before I made myself late for a Christmas party. I found this video that makes it look easy. I'll try again tomorrow or Tuesday following the tips in the video.

    Here is the door all put up in place. The second picture includes the torsion spring in place where it goes. I haven't put tension on the spring yet. I'll have to make some adjustments when I put the sheetrock up, and I may just wait until then to fully install the spring, etc. It will depend on if I need that door for access while I do the other phases of construction.

    Thanks for checking up on me. No progress recently. I put the project to bed for the winter. I have spent my project time working on building some cabinets for my wife's beauty salon.

    I did have one development worth noting. As we got the final electrical inspection for my wife's salon (three year + long project) the electrical inspector asked what was going on with my workshop. We explained how I don't need building permit due to the size, location, etc.; but the inspector said that even if I don't need a building permit, I still need an electrical permit for any changes to electrical. That could complicate things a bit.
