I was looking into modding my HRAP VX SA with a Seimitsu octogonal gate since I have problems pulling off double QCFs towards the right. I’ve been studying up and just thought I’d make sure that I have the right idea of what to get so that I don’t end up with a part I can’t use.
So: if the original stick is a Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT-SK, then the replacement should be a Seimitsu LS-56 and an MS mounting plate, right? Or am I supposed to get an LS-56-01? Apparently they’re the same except one comes with an H5P harness, but I have no clue what that is or if I need it.
On top of swapping out the stick, the original button color scheme is kind of ugly on the 360 stick. I was thinking I’d replace the buttons to make it look like the one on the right in the pic below.
And I figure, since I’m going to have enough parts left over to make another stick for a friend altogether, I’m gonna need a case. Some of the finished cases I’ve seen online are finished wood and cost over $100, but I was just hoping to find a cheap plastic / glass top one. I assume all I need is that, some wire, a cheap Gamestop 360 controller to make a fully functioning stick. Not sure how the 360 home button will work out though. I guess I could just eBay the parts instead.
So the other big question is: what would be the best place to buy all these parts?
For extra info on the stick:
Thanks in advance.
