TGIMBOEJ has left the building.
It has been posted on to a fellow hacker in Kent.
In the end I added quite a lot of stuff to the box. Amongst other things a 6MP CCD from an old Fujitsu S20 pro camera, a bunch of motors from CD-ROM and floppy drives and a few discreet ICs
Soon I will try and post an update about what I did with the switches I took out of the box.
