WTT HRAP3 top panel for HRAP2/SA/EX-SE top panel (FREE PLEXI W/ TRADE)


#1

I recently bought an LS-40 and I totally forgot that the short Seimitsu sticks don’t work with the HRAP3. Therefore, I am looking to trade my HRAP3 top metal panel for a top panel with the same exact layout but with the other stick mounting system. Basically, the 1P Seimitsu layout with the turbo/headset cutout. See pictures:


If you have a HRAP with what I am looking for and are willing to trade (especially if you’re using a plexi-cover and don’t ever see the stock HORI graphic anyway, and/or have an EX-SE that you use with a JLF for some reason), I would extremely appreciate it if we could swap panels. I would pay for shipping both ways, or if you for some reason are in the Savannah, Georgia area we could meet up to do the trade. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out!

[edit] I’ll give you my mildly-flawed extended plexi-cover with the trade! Help me out! :V

Minor bump. Either of these top plates would be perfect, just as an example.

HRAP2SA (if you have art covering it or you don’t mind it being a darker grey and saying “3” instead of “2SA”):

HRAP EX-SE (if for some reason you bought one and decided to put a JLF in it instead!):

Want an hrap2 top panel as well. Can trade a T5 top panel plus some cash and the buttons. After you get yours of course. :bgrin:

Bump to keep this on the front page. This forum moves too quickly :<


#5

Update: I will throw in my mildly-flawed Arthong extended plexi-cover with the trade. I’ll take pictures of it later today. Help me out people!

Actually, you are not limited to HRAP 2, HRAP 2 SA or HRAP EX SE.

Ok, here we go.

But you are looking for those above with the 8-Button Astro City Layout.
So criss-cross what I am about to list.

So there you go.
You have eleven options to get from.
That is eight more HRAP than the three you listed.

Well it doesn’t have to be the Astro City layout, but it does have to have the cutout for the turbo/headset box. So actually, the Capcom Fighting Jam stick would work (though I don’t see why anyone would want to give away what makes their stick unique), but the Tekken 5 stick wouldn’t. Thanks for the useful information, though!


#8

I forgot about the Turbo Box. :sad:
Laugh.

Well now you have nine more HRAP to get from instead of my above eight for your additional three.


#9

what exactly is the difference between your hrap3 and the hrap2? kinda confused. The button layout is the same, right? But somethings up with the joystick part? How does it affect a sanwa joystick install?


#10

It doesn’t affect a JLF at all: on the HRAP2 and others, a flat Sanwa mounting plate on the JLF is necessary. On the HRAP3 and HRAP1b, the mount is pretty much proprietary, and welded to the top panel. Any short-Seimitsu can be used on the former, but the HRAP3 and HRAP1b prevent them from being used. I have no clue why HORI designed it that way.

Anyway, it looks like I’m working out a trade with someone, so if/once that happens, I guess the thread can be closed unless someone else wants to use it for the same purpose.

I’m going to do Quote of a Post of mine.
Because I don’t want to find pictures.

Like MiniFoo said, no affect.
Just different.

This is how a JLF is mounted on non-Universal Mounting Bracket.

There is no use of a Mounting Plate.
(You can use a Mounting Plate though.)
Just screw through those tabs on the JLF Base.
(The HRAP Tekken 6 is weird in that it goes left to right, instead of up and down; Mounting Bracket rotated for some reason.)

That is the same hole to mount a Seimitsu LS-56(-01) with VF Mounting Plate.
Or any Seimitsu Joystick with VF Mounting Plate for that matter.

The Universal Mounting Bracket is just like what you see in Mad Catz TE.
A Mounting Plate is needed to install JLF.

Same holes are used to mount a Seimitsu LS-56(-01) with MS Mounting Plate.
Or any Seimitsu Joystick with MS Mounting Plate for that matter.

Of course, Seimitsu Joysticks with the RE Mounting Plate would use the other holes.

Thanks for the comprehensive post, jdm714! It should help out anybody else who might happen to get themselves into a similar circumstance such as mine. I am trading for an EX-SE top panel from a very gracious SRK member now, so this can be locked I guess!
