how easy is it to install the seimitsu stick?

Nice one jeamsu, I like the colors. How did you cut out the holes for the buttons? Wanted to ask that anyway since it seems hard to cut them out that clean, so they look nice with the buttons.
Also what template did you use? Could you give me a link?
Edit: Another question. Would these buttons: Lizard Lick Amusements - Seimitsu PS-14-KN, 30mm Screw-In Pushbutton, Blue fit this stick or would I need a different size?
Sorry for the dumb question, would be nice if somebody could answer it anyway, thanks.

Any way you slice it,
You are going to end up destroying the original artwork on the HRAP V3 cases if you want new artr. There's just no way around. Unless you have a spare Viewlix acrylic cover or cutting template, you will end up mangling the original art --- either by spraying and applying new sticker art on top of the existing art, or by removing the existing art to unscrew the metal faceplate from the base.
Hori sure didn't design this case with art modding in mind...!
As for the Seimitsu mounting plates, I only have the experience with the SS Mounting Plate used for the LS-32 and LS-40 series. The other Seimitsus -- and for most, they'll probably install the LS-56-01 if not the LS-32-01 --, it'll be a bit different with the other Seimitsu mount.
I know for the SS Plate that I only used two middle screw positions to fasten it on. There were no other screw points for the remaining plate anchor screws! I also ended up using spacers (washers) to create torque to keep the screws in because the screws wouldn't go in all the way...! I tried a power drill but those screws would just not budge so I left well enough alone (with the washers).
I've had worse luck with Hori joystick cases in this sense than Mad Catz's. I never had a situation with the Mad Catz TE's where the screw threads on the mounting plates were so tight that the screws would only thread in halfway or encountered a situation where I had both a broken mounting plate screw (cheap zinc screw) AND a damaged/poorly drilled anchor plate thread on a faceplate!
Again, don't assume that because Hori has an overall higher-regarded reputation that they don't have screw-ups, too.
If anything, the lower priced Hori joysticks are far worse to mod than anything Mad Catz has to offer. The only joystick I've modded that's a bigger pain to mod than the Hori FS series is the Agetec Dreamcast Joystick. It's only a bigger modding challenge because of the higher volume of plastic that has to be cut out just to get 30mm Sanwa's and Seimitsus installed in that case. (Of course, if you're crazy like me and follow MKL's Agetec mod guide then it becomes 3 times more difficult!) That base is still a higher preference for me because of the additional interior room and plexi/VMU screen support from Art Hong.
We're never going to see acrylic plexis for Hori FS joysticks from Art Hong. Could be the case that nobody does a plexi for the HRAP V3 but it'll depend on whether it's worth it. If a removable plexi system can't be created for the HRAP V3 because of nonexistent screw anchorage OR can't be implemented easily like the case was for most Astrocade-case HRAPs, then you have another joystick line to add that simply won't have a plexi like the Hori FS, Mad Catz SE, and most other non-Hori/non-Mad Catz TE joystick lines.

I have an nVidia 680i motherboard and the Hori V3-SA works perfectly with it. The MadCatz FightStick TE does not.

Does the HRAP V3 SA work with Windows 7 64bits?
I read that is PC compatible, but I don't felt really confident about 64bits...
I'm buying a stick for PC use only (GGPO, SSIV AE, emulators etc) and I found a good deal of this stick.
Thanks in advance!

Anyone know of any good online printing options for custom art? I live in a remote area and dont have access to staples or kinkos. The only site I have found is this www.gameongraphix.com. Has anyone used this option for moding this particular stick? I'm just wondering if their polycarbonite print would be too thick and result in peeling.
