Quote from: Tony Farrell on Aug 26, 2017, 11:41 amWhen I undertook my 'pixel counting' from various photos, I got two things wrong - I assumed the box was actually square and that all the cross-rails on the panels were the same size. Neither of these things are true which meant that I'd overstated the height of the doors by just over 1.5 centimeters and I'd over-estimated the widths of the sides (outside edge of the corner-post to outside edge of the corner-post) by just under 2 millimeters: I originally came up with the widths of the sides as 51.25" (1301.75 mm) - they're actually 1300 mm. I originally stated that all the cross rails were 3.6" (92 mm). I based this on the photos Steve W/Fivefingeredstyre took which show the central rail is 92 mm, because Steve's photo is taken with the camera slightly pointing down, I took it that all the cross-rails were the same height but, the remainder are actually 90 mm. (The remainder of the difference is accounted for by the fact the actual height of the panel recesses varies too - so depending on which door you measure/count the pixels on, you get different results.)
