This is a pretty awesome-looking rack.

I'm happy to purchase some rack screws if anyone knows the right type of screw.

I'm also happy to help out if we want to plan a big rack moving day
where we move the WiFi service to a temporary AP somewhere else, rip
everything out of that closet and build it all up again.
It's probably a whole days worth of work to do it all correctly.

The only thing I'm concerned about moving is the patch panel. It's
only labeled on the front, so cables should be kept attached to this,
or numbered, re-fed, and re-terminated.
