How does the garage door opener work, i.e. can it be programmed to work with any generic door system?

this one just has the button for it but you can get them with the garage door you have and have them programmed.

Not bad. I'm going to start looking for one. Did you get the compass and everything working?

how did you figure bracket placement?
take the tabs that go through the bracket right. push those into your headliner where you would like your OHC to be mounted. be sure to push it hard to where it makes marks. then i put the bracket up there where i pushed the tabs in it and outlined it with a sharpie and then cut. i found it easier that way. and i did a small section at a time.

Nice install, but what the hell happened to that beautiful mossy oak stripe over the hood? That thing looked bad ass. Or am I missing something here?
