While the 640MP chassis is VERY VERY VERY much like the SS2000, I beleive it
is worth mentioning that the front door is hinged from the other side,
because they appear to have assembled it with the skeleton backwards.

That's a bit of an understatement, it's a full wide rack, identical in
dimensions to an E2000.


I'd pick it up but the van in those pics is almost dead now and I don't have
a replacement yet.  Plus, it's a long drive from VA.

Now that I look at those pictures, I'm surprised I diddn't take the side
facing down off before putting it in the van.  It was carpeted at least and
it's in pretty good condition.
As you can see all drive shelves were removed before tilting it into the van
which helps alot.
