May I ask what boards and spare parts in general you have?  I happen to have a nearly bare BA440 chassis that could use some VAX 4000 parts.  Or perhaps there is someone out there that would like to combine their parts, your parts and my chassis to make a while VAX 4000?

I do not particularly need an(other) operating VAX and am willing to part with the chassis if someone can use it.  Unfortunately, it's pretty bare.  I got it from a local guy when I bought a MicroVAX 3100.  He had sold a VAX 4000 Model 300 to someone and all they wanted were the boards.  So he stripped it as instructed and left the chassis. It needs a fan, P/S, console panel, front door(s), storage pods and various cables.  It's basically a box with a backplane.  It's available for pickup in the Cincinnati, Ohio area, or perhaps a meet can be arranged within a few hours drive.
