Ow!  That happened to me in a commercial-space basement about 20 years ago.
Unfun.  In my event, I lost a 4' shelf of late 1970s/early 1980s BYTE
magazines, a Diablo 30, and a Beehive terminal (big blocky metal box,
like the ones that are under discussion here every once in a while).

The only cab parts I am perpetually looking for are the older backdoor
bushings - they sit on a fixed 1/4" dia post at the corner of an H960,
then allow the door skin to pivot around it.  Bad ASCII art follows:

The whole thing is smaller than a grape.  Some of the cabs I got back
in the day were just plain, bare cabs, no accessories whatsoever.  For
some reason, I never seem to turn up any of those bushings when I go
through piles of DEC rack hardware.
