Been thinking a lot about making this thread, because boy do I have one to tell.
First off this happened with my very first stick I ever bought, got it from GameStop online about a few weeks after I first picked up SSF4 and before I even knew about SRK or the TO. Well it got here and it was great, looked nice and “new” but I wasn’t a fan of the art work on it, so ordered a plexi from Art, new red buttons and balltop and I was satisfied that is was a little bit more “me”. But then after a while I thought “Hey I should pain the case and make it even more customized”, so I prepped it up sanded it and all and painted it.
Unfortunately after using it and having it around the house and a nephew that liked to mess with it, it got a little dinged up and paint got scratched up, and well it just didn’t look so great. So I figured I’d re-do it, so I went to the store bought some paint remover and got to work, while removing the paint I noticed it was actually “melting” the shell and that just ended up creating deep scratches and other marks on it. So I came to the conclusion that my stick now looked like ass, I ended up gutting the whole thing took it to the back yard, and let’s just say the case got the meaner end of an axe. =( The Wiring and such was then sold through here on SRK, here’s the kicker guys, my first stick that this story was about was a LE Xbox 360 BlazBlue:CS TE. I still feel like a complete dumbass to this day for what was done to that poor stick, especially for what I could’ve sold it for. LORD FORGIVE ME FOR WHAT I HAVE DONE, BETTER YET MARKMAN FORGIVE ME lol.
This is all that remains, other than the gutted wiring that was sold…
