There is a need to consolidate equipment at a rented remote space.   Any suggestions as to a rack that would hold a Flex6600,  PGXL  (possible Flex Tuner :)) and a DLI 120/240V power strip and an 8 position 12V DC power distribution panel.....  Plus misc power supplies, rotor control  etc.   I think the misc stuff could fit on a couple rack mtd shelves.    What is a good source for racks to mount equipment?  Any recommendations appreciated.
Thanks es 73,  Larry  K1UO

I took my time and waited for a deal on Craigslist.  I found a nice HP G2 server cabinet in good shape.  the cabinet with all of the side panels, front and both rear doors was less that $200.00.  A while later I found a seller that had about 200 vented, 175 pound rated, adustable StarTech (IIRC) shelves at a good price; I think I bought eight of them for around $30 each.  Navepoint also has pretty good prices on shelves, blanking panels etc.  I found a genuine HP bonding kit for the cabinet on eBay for around $25.00 as well as black cage nuts and screws.

This is it, still in progress, without the doors or side panels attached:
