    Looking for ideas on how to refurbish a garage door. It seems to function perfectly fine but needs a makeover. Has anyone had experience painting a panel lift door or re-skinning one?

    I'd like to replace it with a timber one but it really doesn't need replacing..just a cheap makeover....and washing the driveway plus removing a bunch of trees hanging over the drive and hiding the house ;)

    We've successfully painted a tilt-door before. Looked so much better, but eventually replaced with a panel lift. But painting certainly looked better than the faded original. You do need a little prep though to allow the new paint to get a grip.
