I have both types. AFAIK, the older drives did _not_ have the
access panel, and this goes double for RL01 drives (of which I
have several, since they were "cheap"* when I was into collecting
stuff for my PDP-8 in college, c. 1985)


* - "cheap" meaning that the drives cost the same or less than the
shipping. :-( During the same timeframe, RL02 drives were still
current and selling new for well over $1,000 USD.
