I don’t really need anymore since i’ve already ordered everything I needed so I’ll just start posting up my progress as I’m modding the stick.
Here’s the stick after I’ve gutted it out.
An OBSF-30 Sanwa button doesn’t fit due to the hole being only 29mm so I had to figure out what I wanted to do; either buy Korean Crown buttons, Ultralux buttons (which would have both fit fine) or buy a metal filer to increase the size of the hole in order to fit the 30mm buttons.
Here are the parts I received from Lizard Lick Amusements. All Sanwa parts; twelve OBSF-30 buttons, four Sanwa OBSF-24 buttons, four Sanwa OBSM 30mm hole plugs, six Sanwa OBSM 24mm hole plugs, and two JLF-TP-8T ball handle joysticks.
I decided to try to make Sanwa buttons fit so I went out to buy a metal filer and got the job done. Well not really. I still haven’t done the Player 2 side yet due to laziness. It took me forever to do the Player 1 side and my hands got real tired, lol. That’s what happens when you don’t have money to buy a dremel.
The following examples have inspired me to achieve the modification…
Here is serpentarius’ awesome mod with all Ultralux buttons: http://www.shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=153574
fightstix modded his with a BlazeBlue theme and all Sanwa buttons but the pictures on his thread are down. Fortunately I’ve found his Photobucket album with photos of the mod here: http://s698.photobucket.com/albums/vv343/fightstix/
By the way, if anyone wants to take the stock buttons and / or joysticks off my hands, feel free to let me know. I doubt I’ll ever be re-using them, lol. They all work perfectly fine last time I played with them.
I’ll be sure to post up more updates as I progressed.
