I rubbed the paint off of one of my TE screws already


#1

I rubbed the paint off of the bottom left screw on my TE stick. I guess the sweat combined with the joystick motions of a noob rubbed the paint off. :sad: Where can i find some replacement screws, or paint?


#2

Hardware store…maybe?

…perhaps?

…?!


#3

or some paint. I can’t believe the paint came off so easily…


#4

lol :slight_smile:


#5

Just sand it with a high grain sand paper and paint those things with some spray paint. It works out great. Or you can try to find replacements for the screws. I couldn’t find any that I thought were worth it by me.

That’s actually a very great idea. Thanks. I’ll break out the old black spray paint.


#7

mines is starting to rust!


#8

Cheaply coated, mild steel is on of the ways Madcatz kept the profit margins higher (that and cheap plastic). Paint it, powder coat it or replace’em with stainless fasteners.


#9

Yo like…seriously. I just got the stick today, and it looks like my screw went through time or something.


#10

I have like 1 or 2 screws where there is no black on it anymore. Mad Catz used some cheapass parts like usual. :lame:


#11

warranty it! go go go!


#12

Don’t forget, cheap PCBs that drop roundhouse randomly.


#13

all six screws of mine look like they got pulled out of the titanic, they’re all rusted. I might need a tetanus shot.
