    The VEWLIX I stole at 208 shipped. Came with extra buttons. [img][/img]16508007_10212084023320224_4142641647124425039_n_zpsatgwtks9.jpg
    I'm also in the process of Vinyl wrapping the case in yellow. I just got the sega 8 button layout from Jasen and I need a get something going on it art wise. Something Dr.fate from DC Comics or maybe a DOA/Virtua fighter mash up. If anyone can point me in that direction that'd be great.

    @DrFate
    Nice custom case, odd layout, wrong thread for showing off custom sticks. :)

    Nice score on the price of the VLX Kuro.

    And don't triple-post; you can edit your posts and add more to them.

    Is the Shadaloo Transporter XL bag the only one available for the VLX currently? 120$ is really hard to swallow for a bag.
  • oodkoodk Joined: Posts: 293
    @Scotch there Qanba bag that cost around $60

    Yes, but protecting a $300, collectible Fight Stick shouldn't be cheaper out on. The Splitframe bags are super high quality with a lot of padding in them. The $60 Qanba (which is too small) has no padding.

    I agree with Jasen. The VLX is a $300+ arcade stick, some of us put a hundred dollars or more in mods into our VLX sticks to customize it further.

    I always say, and the new guys always scoff at this, you get what you paid for.

    Never pay double the retail price

    I'm getting a new top sheet made to go with Jasen's 6 button VLX layout - probably going to print to vinyl and then bond it to plexiglass.

    I have everything ready to go - just looking at suppliers for the print and plexi (here in the UK).

    Can anyone advise on the thickness of the plexi? The original looks like 2mm but I'm not 100%. Obviously it'd be great to hear from someone who's done similar stuff with their VLX.

    I'll post pics when she's done :)

    There was no original plexy. Hori sticks do not ship with a stock plexy. The original art is just printed on to a sheet of soft plastic.
    As for bonding the vinyl plastic to a sheet of acrylic, Do not even try it.
    If you aren't careful the glue can act as a solvent and ruin the print.

    Better off getting something like roll-on, spray matte or shiny laminated for the vinyl, or I'm sure places that print like auto shops can print on vinyl and apply a sheet of laminate too, not sure which is tougher though.
  • Jasen HicksJasen Hicks JasensCustoms.com Joined: Posts: 2,215
    When I print and cut for the VLX panels I do it in a couple stages:

    1. Print on the vinyl.
    2. Let it dry for 24-48hrs.
    3. Laminate it with satin vinyl laminate by Oracal.
    4. Put it back in the machine to cut.

    Sign shops should follow the same method. There is spray on film specifically designed for solvent based inks, but its definitely not as tough as an actual film.

    Thanks for the advice, I have found a place that can laser cut a thin piece of acrylic (plexi) to spec for a fair (cheap) price, and so I was thinking of bonding a print to this somehow. And yeah - probably using professional help as I really have no clue about what glue to use and how to do a decent job of it!

    I make the stock plastic top to be 2mm so I was gonna aim to copy this. Similar to Jasen I found a supplier who could do everything necessary, but this was almost the price of the stick itself...(£200).

    And sorry Jasen - you mentioned laminating a vinyl print before. I'll check out the spray/film options for laminating as it would afford a bit more room for error. Here I could laminate the bleed too as opposed to going down the plexi route which would require a cut around the edge (before the bleed).

    I got my hori vlx hayabusa a few days ago. Like others have reported I had problems with the buttons. 2 of my hayabusa "falcon" buttons was squeaking pretty bad. I read threads that said after some use and breaking them in the squeak will go away. I thought I should share my faster fix that worked for me. What I did was pop off the center and rotate it 180 degree and reinstalled it. Squeak is now completely gone for both buttons. Hope this helps others.

    I had to re-use my older Hayabusa Joystick I bought from @FreedomGundam years ago since that one doesn't have the wobble problem.
