You would need to open up the wall again and re-install the garage door and tracks for it, which means you would also have to tear down a good portion of the ceiling to put the tracks back in. If you're carefull you can remove the wall without destroying whatever the exterior of the house is finished with, and then just frame out the opening again with trim.

Basically a garage door, some sheetrock and molding...and labor.
UUHH Yeah what i said.
