The plastic pieces for the BA23 you are looking for are purely 
cosmetical. It can say MicroVAX I just as well as PDP-11/93. It won't 
make a difference to the computer inside. And the larger covers are also 
more for cosmetic reason than anything else. Although it might always be 
nice to cover the hardisk so people don't go around and kick it. :-)

And the cabkit for the 11/93 is *only* for the panel at the back. The 
panel at the front is generic, and the same for all computers in a BA23.

And yes, the 11/93 boards can be upgraded to 4 Meg. You just need to 
find the chips, which might start to be a little tricky, but talk with 
used chip dealers.
I've done this myself on several boards...
