The G5 never used a "caddy" so are you talking about a G4? The G5 used pins on the bottom that would slide in and lock when you close the lever.

N/M, the pictures are working now.
I don't know where you can find the surround but found these mounting screws on ebay.

I can't remember if I have an extra surround or not. If i do, I'll sell it to you. You have to order or jerry rig the screws, not that hard.
