Migrating from Catalyst 6513 to 4507

We are looking to replace both our Catalyst 6513 with two new Catalyst 4510RE.  I was looking for some documentation, on the best process to migrate, with minimal down time, but can't get my hands on anything.  Can somebody suggest any good documents?

Not sure about any migration

Not sure about any migration documentations, but if you are running HSRP or VRRP between your existing 6513 switches.  You can replace the VRRP or HSRP stand-by with a 4510 and make sure to bring it up as stand-by.  Once that is done, you can change the priority on the new 4500 so it become the active switch and the other 6500 stand-by.  Now you can replace the other 6500 with 4500 and bring it up as stand-by.

Warning: you need to have an outage window to do any of these procedures, as you can never know what may go wrong.
