If you place an order for a personalized product along with non-custom products, such as arcade part or merchandise, please note that all products will ship together. We ask for a minimum of 7-10 business days to process custom orders and prepare for shipping, as we often have a large queue, and personalized orders require additional processing work. If you desire to receive your non-custom products earlier, then please place two separate orders. This will allow the non-custom orders to ship within our normal 1-2 business days.
The art cover replacement top panel offers one of the best ways to customize your joystick. The plexiglass sits atop specially cut artwork, allowing you to add or replace new custom artwork to match your joystick theme.
Sized for Hori Fighting Edge (PS4 Only). Install Notes
The Hori Fighting Edge is one of the company's largest Fightsticks save for the enormous arcade authentic Hori VLX series. The control panel itself is quite large - over 17 inches wide. Please note this this service is NOT compatible with the older PS3 or Xbox 360 model. Some important notes while installing and replacing your pushbuttons:
First, flip the Hori Edge Fightstick on its back to expose 8 screws you will remove to get inside the control panel. The leftmost two screws will allow you to access the start button, which you must remove to free the metal panel
With the bottom panel removed, inspect button wiring and joystick. You will detach the wiring from each button in order to dislodge it from the panel. The joystick shaft's balltop is also detached prior to removing the metal panel.
Please take note of the wiring color when reattaching the buttons:Make note of the original order of wiring and colors, including one ground for each command button:
Square = Blue
Triangle = Yellow
R1 = Red
L1 = Orange
X = Grey
O = Green
R2 = Black
L2 = Green
With the smaller screws removed from the leftmost bottom panel, you will expose the Fightstick's start/option button. Note that this button does not rest on an underlying metal panel. This is because the Edge's original metal panel would serve this purpose. The replacement acrylic panel should manage the pressure without cracking, but take care not to jam the button in too hard when replacing it. Detach the white wiring in order to remove the start button from the panel.
Remove the balltop connected to the joystick shaft by inserting a flathead screwdriver to the bottom of the shaft and turning the balltop counter-clockwise.
Now, flip the Fightstick on its top, exposing the original metal panel. Use a 4mm hex key (or 5/32") to unscrew each of the 6 screws at top.
An important note: under each top panel screw you will find a nut in the Fightstick housing. Please keep these nuts, as you will need them to reattach the plexi panel. They may fall out when the screws are removed. One way to address this for future installs is to apply some superglue to the area where the nut rests, then place the nut back and allow to dry/cure.
As you can see, the underlying panel does not extend the full length of the Fightstick. The acrylic should bear some of the pressure from the PS4 Start/Option button, located at the right. It is here that you will install your artwork and replacement plexi, then reverse the steps to reinstall buttons joystick balltop, wiring and bottom panel.
Durable Configuration. Laser Cut Layout
The Hori Fighting Edge top panel is constructed using resilient clear acrylic, and layout is cut to precision with a laser etching device.
You have several options to personalize your control panel, such as button layout, removal of control panel or screws in some models, button label etching, and text etching.
Each Fightstick has its own characteristics, with some sharing similar elements, such as the popular Vewlix button layout. We will specify what options are available for each Fightstick. Below are the most common button layout configurations:

Needed one to put some art on my fighting edge. It's a fine piece of work; cut just right. I'd buy another one from here if I needed a new oneAaron

Great Plexi Replacement
This did exactly what I wanted it to. It enables me to flip between the metal top plate and placing art under this plexi. Installation was easy and there were no scratches on the plexi which is nice as I have had this happen from other sites when I was working on other projects that required plexiglassUnknown
