    Important: Custom Orders Do Not Ship Separately

    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 Razer Panthera (2017 Model). Different Plexi Thicknesses, M4x12mm TE Plexiglass Hex Screws for MadCatz TE Optional

    Razer Panthera (PS3/PS4)
    Panthera (PS4, PS3) Panel Template (1.7Mb zip)

    Compatible with 2.5mm Hex ScrewsThe artwork is designed to fit the Razer Panthera for Playstation® 4/3. This will not fit the new Razer Panthera EVO (2018 model), nor Razer Atrox for Xbox One or Xbox 360.  Blank plexi, custom etch plexi and artwork for this Atrox are available.  Please note that the plexi - at .060" - is not the same thickness as the original model of .080", but will closely line up with the Panthera's control panel lip as artwork is added.

    With the original panel removed, you can use the original panel screws that are provided underneath the plexi.  See Install notes for additional information.  Additionally, should you choose to highlight your panel, you can purchase M4x12mm TE Plexiglass screws in multiple colors.  The screws require a 2.5mm hex key.  Both screws and hex key are optionally available to bundle at a 25% discount.

    Install Notes

    Some important notes while installing:

    Plexworks Panthera Install - Step 1 Plexworks Panthera Install - Step 2
    Open the Panthera by pressing the button with logo on the Fightstick's front panel.  The top panel will disconnect from the bottom and swing upwards.  Take note of the wiring, as you will need to remove the buttons.  Thankfully, a wiring guide is located under the top panel (pictured).  With needle-nose pliers, remove each wire from the button by pinching on the disconnect. You can press onto a small tab on each disconnect to easily remove it from the button microswitch terminals.
    Plexworks Panthera Install - Step 3 Plexworks Panthera Install - Step 4
    The Panthera control panel is glued down to the metal panel underneath with a strong adhesive. Use a heat gun or hair dryer to gradually weaken the bond.  Focus on one area first in order to create a small a gap, enough to position a flathead screwdriver or other wedge between the plexi and metal.  With a screwdriver, continue to heat the acrylic and loosen the adhesive while prying away the acrylic panel top from metal panel below.  Note that you may have scratches on the panel as a result - this is normal and will not affect installation of the new artwork. 
    Plexworks Panthera Install - Step 5 Plexworks Panthera Install - Step 6
    Some of the adhesive is pretty stubborn.  You can use liquid adhesive remover solutions such as Goo-Gone, or continue to heat the adhesive on the panel to weaken further and peel away the glue. Let the Goo-Gone set in for 15-20 minutes or longer to loosen the adhesive bond to the panel.  On the top four corners of the underlying metal panel you will find a conical Phillips screw.  If you intend to use the screws that came with your Panthera to install your panel, please keep those screws.
     Panthera Install: Step 7
    This photo illustrates which screws to remove and put aside.  Your panel will come with contour cuts to accomodate those screws.  You can still use TE hex screws as an optional purchase should you like to highlight your stick with colored screw tops.

    Durable Configuration. Laser Cut Layout

    The Panthera top panel is constructed using resilient clear acrylic, and layout is cut to precision with a laser etching device.

     Options

    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.

    REMOVING DEFAULT ELEMENTS

    Layout Configuration

    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:

    8 Button Vewlix
    First 6 Buttons
    Last 6 Buttons
    7 Button Vewlix
    8 Button Vewlix
    First 6 Buttons
    Last 6 Buttons
    7 Button Vewlix

    Removing Default Elements 

    Some Fightsticks, such as the popular MadCatz TE, offer additional personalization options by removing default elements such as control panel, start button, or screws.  Cut options are defaulted to their authentic counterpart, displayed as [YES (default)] in the options list.  For example, a MadCatz TE, the default configuration is to have the turbo/guide portion of the control panel cut, so that the control panel can fit properly.  You have the option to select [NO] to prevent cutting these areas.  

    Cut Control Panel? [NO]
    Cut Start Buttons [NO]
    Cut Middle and/or Bottom Screws? [NO]
    Cut Control Panel? [NO]
    Cut Start Button? [NO]
    Cut Middle and/or Bottom Screws? [NO]

    Cut Control Panel? [NO] - If you own a MadCatz TE, and installed a PS360+, you may no longer need the Turbo/Guide area of the control panel, located at top left.  This option allows you to remove the Turbo/Guide portion.  Please note that you MUST remove the actual control panel on the TE by unscrewing it before applying the plexi, or you risk damaging the plexi.  Also, please make certain to select this option if you are also choosing to have artwork printed, or the plexi and artwork won't match.

    Cut Start Button? [NO] - On some joysticks - such as the Qanba Q4 - the start button is directly on the panel.  You can select to have this removed.  You can also select this should you desire a panel similar to the Eightarc Fusion or Synthesis series Fightstick, as the start button is moved elsewhere.  Again, this option is available on specific joysticks.

    Cut Middle and/or Bottom Screws? [NO] - Selecting "no" on this option allows you to remove the middle top and bottom screw holes on specific joysticks, either for a cleaner appearance or to avoid rubbing your wrist against the screw.  Please reconsider this option if you intend to have a full panel etch on your plexi, as etching physically changes portions of the plexi due to heat.  In this case, it is best to leave the screw holes in place in order to keep the panel securely positioned.

    1. Good but...

      It is good and clean, very nice - but a slight crack near the bottom left hole. Shipping to and from Australia probably did it unfortunately. I bought roughly 20 items and only this had an issue. First purchase from Focusattack, so benefit of the doubt. If I lived in the USA, I would probably try to swap it, but unfortunately probably not worth the hassle from Australia. on Aug 7th 2019

    2. So good im gonna write a damn essay about it.

      if youre looking to change out your pantheras art, this is the best plexi you can get.
      there has been some issues with the plexi for some customers in the past, myself included, but FA seem to have really ironed them out and listened to customer feedback seriously. the new plexis they sell work perfectly and i can see no issues with them at all.

      i live in Australia so i usually have to wait around 3 weeks but it came in just around 2 weeks, so thats a massive thumbs up from me.
      ive experienced no bowing with my plexi, buttons clip in properly, everything is flush and there isnt any gaps between anything that you can see or feel.
      its as if its the exact original plexi just with screw holes and no glue. its honestly really damn good.

      being in such a far away land, i heard about the bowing issues of the thinner plexis from the past and had some concerns, i was worried that the plexi would bend or start bowing during transit, but FA really packaged it well and it got to my place without a single defect, i'm sure if you live in america where transport times would be faster, you'd probably never experience those issues.

      originally i had purchased the product back when they were selling a plexi that was too thick, which was supposed to remedy the bowing issue of the plexi, which it did, but as a result it didnt fit flush and buttons wouldn't clip into the plexi properly.
      however, after contacting the company, not even 2 minutes after pressing send they gave me a message explaining the situation.
      They were able to use my name alone to find the date of when i purchased my item, and they were able to ship me out a replacement plexi all for free, clearly showing that this company has some pretty damn impressive databases and WILL be able to help you with pretty much anything if any issues should arise.

      really happy with the purchase. it was well worth the money.

      product: 5 stars, does what it needs to do and perfectly.
      customer service: 5 stars, they were fast af and did a damn good job.
      my product review: too long, this essay has gone on long enough.
      would i recommend this thing?: hell yeah. theres 0 reason to not recommend it if you want to be creative.

    3. Not bad, but still has bowing issue

      Update by FA: The Panthera's top portion does not have enough surface area to eliminate bending. We tried a thicker plexi, but received complaints about being too thick for buttons and requiring contours. Also, please take care not to overtighten the screws, which can lead to bowing
      ---
      Ordered mind around April 2019. When I installed plexi I noticed the bowing issue around the top control panel area. The bowing is big enough to fit my pinky inside if I wanted to. I think dust might start settling inside over time.

      Not sure if mine was defective or this is a general issue

    4. Good, but brittle. Be careful with it.

      It fits to the panthera with a few gaps of a few millimeters, but it's not really anything to warrant complaint. The gaps are generally unnoticeable unless you're very particular, like me.

      Be very careful not to overtighten the fastening screws. Only tighten them enough to hold the cover in place. The material is brittle under compression. If it cracks, the screws will pass through.

    5. Plexi after reship

      When I first ordered my clear plexi, it arrived broken. But after reaching out in an email with pictures, a new one was shipped out in about 2 days and I got it before the end of the week. Love it. on Mar 7th 2019
