Nice project. I've always thought it would be neat to have this capability but with something with low power consumption that could be charged via solar so that it could run wirelessly. It'd be cool to mount to a post near some new construction and capture the whole build.
Great. I was in the same boat as you and did a bunch of research before deciding to tackle the project and finally decided to bite the bullet. There's not much information about out there about this task that I could find. I'm glad that I was able to help.
For that small amount, I'd be tempted to cut 1/8"-1/4" off the top of the door and cut new hinge mortises in the door frame to move the door and hinges up that amount. You'd have to patch in a little where your hinges used to sit, which would be easy to hide if the door frame is painted. A stained door frame would be hard to match colors. The top of the door is assembled basically the same as the bottom, except that there isn't a weatherstrip to cover the folds.
I'm assuming the threshold is still above the new wood floor? If so, then you can get by just cutting the door to be shorter, either from the top or the bottom. I'd pull the hinge pins and lay the door on some saw horses and pull the weatherstrip off the bottom and assess if it would be easier to modify the top or bottom of the door. Modifying the top will require relocating the hinges as mentioned earlier, but you could likely just router the desired length from the wood/plastic piece on the top and not have to worry about removing any foam. I'm not sure if any of this was helpful, but good luck with whatever you decide.

I'm familiar with what plastics can be used. I was wanting to know which type was used in this instructable. What is that yellow fish made out of?
I'm curious what type of thermoplastic was used to make the fish? At what temp does that plastic melt?I saw in another comment that you used the TAP plastics general purpose epoxy which is a clear/yellowish color. Why is your epoxy black?
Well, the bottom seal fits into the grooves in the bottom piece, so if you cut those off, there will be nothing to hold the bottom seal. You'd need to move the bottom piece inward by 1/4-1/2", which would require all the same steps that I did, just different lengths removed.
