HP 12.7mm dvd drive in Thinkpad

Broke the front fascia off the Elitebook's DVD drive, then put an R50p DVD MULTI II's fascia and ultrabay lock on the Elitebook's DVD for a retro looking DVD MULTI III equivalent that works in my T420. :??: Totally pointless but fun.

I put a SuperDrive from a mac in a T500 and glued a MultiIII face on. Then I repeatedly tried to mash the eject button then realized it wasnt functional.
