I have an HORI RAP V3 and an HORI RAP 4 KAI. I would like to customize both of them by adding a clear Plexi with etching and an artwork print under it.
I’m hesitating about changing the buttons, the default ones are good but feel sticky and loose. I would prefer more resistant buttons with a surface similar to the PS4 controller sticks.
Oh and I live in Switzerland.
So I know what I want but now… how, where and what ?
I looked for a shop that can prepare the plexi and let me choose the etching, I found this : http://tek-innovations.com/arthobbies/index.cfm?loc=about&sub=etchings
They ship in Europe and I can buy the plexi and the artwork there. Are they good ? Is there a better alternative for me in Europe ?
Their tutorial is pretty clear, I understand how I should give them the etching for the plexi but I’m not 100% sure how to prepare the artwork.
Now my first question, I saw that every fightstick is a bit different. **How will I add the plexi ? **
I guess I must open the stick, take the buttons and the joystick off. Take off the metal plate and… ? I didn’t find a tutorial for the V4 Kai but I’m guessing it is similar than other HORI stick but I’m not sure.
Let’s say I want to change my buttons for the reason I described above. What should I get ? Sanwa, I heard they are better? (Because the defaults are kuro)
The connections are the same between buttons brands, right ? I don’t need to change the PCB ? (because if I must, I will not change the buttons)
The HAYABUSA joystick is great. It is a bit sticky but sturdy so unless I want another color I won’t change it.
I’m sorry if I could find the answers elsewhere on the forum.
Some of my questions are very specific so I just ask everything directly.
I hope you will be able to help me
