Default stealthing a drive ?'s

I would like to hide my dvd drive and have not been able to find any pictorials on how to do. I want it to be where it looks like an empty bay door, but how do I get the drawer to open if I block it with a front to a bay to hide. Should i cut a hole for the button(but this seems to defeat the purpose), if I lined up the button with a drop of silicone on the back side of the plate that would act like a buffer between the 2?

any help is apprishated,

Use velcro to attach it to the DVD tray and for the button use something to fill in the gap between the button and the door such as a small piece of wood, rubber, etc. that way you can just press the bottom corner and it will pop open for ya.
