I have an HRAP1 and am looking to replace the parts, with sanwa buttons and a Seimitsu stick. Unfortunately, I’ve heard that seimitsu sticks don’t fit in the newer HRAP1 models because of some problem with the plastic plate. I’m attempting to convince someone who has an older (metal top) HRAP1 to swap plates with me, but if he decides against it, is there any way to modify the existing plastic plate so as to allow a Seimitsu stick to work? How would one go about doing so?
(I looked through the forum for similar questions and couldn’t find one. If this has already been answered, I apologize, and only ask that you direct me to the thread where I can find what I’m looking for.)
