General Tips:

- Avoid Using Electric drills / screw drivers when screwing down your plexi, joystick, and back cover as they can strip or drill through the screw holes. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE SCREWS, it can crack the acrylic or ruin the thread on the screw holes!

- Have Fun & Take Your Time!

Joystick:

- Sanwa JLF Joysticks with Flat Mounting plate such as:

Seimitsu joysticks with the "MS" style plate & Hori Hayabusa joysticks will work but may require modifications to fit due to height clearance.


Buttons:

- Top: Fits 30mm Japanese style SNAP-IN buttons (Sanwa, Seimitsu, Hori, Gamerfinger, etc).

- Sides: Use 24mm Japanese style SCREW-IN buttons. Sanwa is recommended for a tighter fit.


USB Port:

You'll need to install a Neutrik USB feed-through port in the extra 24mm hole in the back. If you are using the new Brook PS4+ Audio board, you will need to modify the USB port hole in order to make it fit.

Painting Tips:

Fill in any gaps with wood filler.

Sand case with 200 grit (or more) sandpaper until smooth.

Roll or spray on 1 coat of Primer, allow to dry

Sand until smooth, wipe off any access debris, repeat with additional coast if necessary.

Roll or spray on your paint color. If using spray paint, follow the directions on the can (spray in one direction, in thin coats, stay at least 12" away while spraying). ALLOW TO FULLY DRY IN BETWEEN COATS. Sand to smooth any rough areas. Use higher grit sandpaper in between coats to achieve a smooth finish. Wipe off any debris. Repeat for 3 additional coats or until satisfied.
