Missing fdd ejection button replacement

Picked up a slimline Compaq Deskpro EN a while back from a charity stall. Didn't really need it but the money was going to a good cause. Finally got around to making up an fdd which was missing from the machine. Just a large silver plastic pen button cut to shape, with a slot to locate a 1cm x 1cm piece of discarded tupperware container. The pieces were secured by some Selleys supposed wiptydo glue and job done. Good as new.

Don't tell the wife I used her pen ok ;)
