I just did mine and you'll have to cut and try a few times to get them right. Start your first cut at the start of the angle. Be sure your linear gears are installed properly so you get full travel. Keep trimming the pushrods until they are just flush with the plastic blocks (retracted position).

I had to mill my aluminum pin blocks a bit as there was a bit of variation in recess depths fore and aft on my doors for the plastic guide blocks.

You'll have to modify the door seal setup to clear the aluminum blocks.

I feel a lot better about this setup over the Vans one but also added the safety latches to the main handles. I posted some photos last week on this easy mod.
