One of the many detail differences between orders as noted on the SD45 Proto Page; was the handbrake arrangement.
The first order had a nose mounted ratchet handbrake and the rest had a rear long hood mounted wheel handbrake. This affected the long hood door arrangement, and Jean-Marie from Belgium has contributed drawings of the two arrangements.
L means 22" wide door; S means 18" wide door.
