Sorry to start the day OT, but I'm sure you lovely lot will have some
tips/experience! ;)

We have a HP Server Cabinet (42U 10842 G2), that we've stripped down to the
bare-bones chassis. It now measures 750mm wide.

We have a door-way that said server cabinet must fit through, measuring up
at 620mm.

The cabinet chassis is welded at all four corners, so can't be taken apart
any more without being cut.

Can you see where this is leading yet? Three obvious questions:

1) Have you ever had to fit a cabinet through a doorway that's too small?
2) How did you do it? Cut cabinet, demolish wall ...?
3) If you cut the cabinet, any tips?
