One lesson learned the hard way on exactly the installation you are doing. Be sure to install the Plane Around 180 with the Van's provided actuator gears in the door pocket at the location specified in the Plane Around and Van's instructions. I made the mistake of centering the actuator in the pocket with the Plane Around plate centered, figuring it would give better clearance for the lock. However, the connecting "rods" provided with the Plane Around package are designed for the actuator mechanism to be located per the Van's instructions, with is not centered in the pocket. As a result, I had to have new "rods" created so that they were the right length for the location I placed the actuator within the door.
If you can be more specific as to what your questions are and what parts you want to see, I may have some photos of my build that could help.
