Mad Catz TE Round 2 metal plate


#1

Hi guys, I have a problem with my Mad Catz TE Round 2. I should replace the metal plate on the bottom of the stick because it’s all rusted and it ruins my pants when I put it on my legs.

What can I do? Can I replace it? Where can I buy a new one? Can I replace it with a non metal one? Or maybe a metal plate covered with gum/plastic or something like that.

could always try removing the plate and sanding it down then either paint it or maybe buy some of that velvet material and glue it onto the plate.

I believe there are products you can use to help get rid of the rust, but I would just use some good old fashioned elbow grease with some steel wool, then seal/paint it with something that inhibits rust.

Once you do that you can always put this plexi on it:

I’m pretty sure you can’t use that without the metal panel.

Thank you guys, I think I’ll just use an anti-rust product + steel wool + elbow grease because basically:

  • I don’t see new metal panels on the GameShark store
  • they don’t ship to Italy
  • those little screws on the bottom are just IMPOSSIBLE to unscrew, they are hard as hell and maybe glued with that stupid red goop.

The plexi panel is very cool but maybe the thickness on the bottom would be too much because I have to put it on the metal one
