UV LED lightbox from old flatbed scanner

At first, I disassembled HP ScanJet 5c and found two boards mounted on the scanner chassis. The first one, with power supply and stepper motor driver seemd to be usable in the lightbox. The second one with SCSI logic and controller has been dropped away and replaced by my own controller board. 3 plastic slide blocks has been unscrewed from unmounted carriage (with CCD, optics and lamp).

These slide blocks screwed to the new carriage:

I screwed one optical sensor (AKA photo interrupter) to chassis, it should be triggered when crarriage moved to the start position.

On this photo:
1. stepper motor
2. optical sensor
3. LEDs
4. plastic slider blocks
5. piece of tin for optical sensor obturation

On this photo you can see how carriage connected to the belt.
