    It didn't come out just like I wanted but it did come pretty close. The buttons were totally not what I was expecting and ended up being bottom threaded with the connectors in different spots. This made me have to wire the buttons into the controller which was kinda nice since I was able to swap the Y button with the Left Trigger. The lamni-label is pretty cool but one thing I learned is once it sits you can't retry so now I got a small crease. I could have cut it a little better as well but what can I say it was my first attempt. It plays great, controls are great with me now landing 90% of my intended moves now including Shorukens.

    This is what the stick originally looked like.

    All the changes are listed above but I'll break it down:
    Change 1: Replace ball top on the stick for what we call a bat.
    Change 2: Add the plastic over the chrome stick for a more arcade look
    Change 3: Now this you can't see but I changed the gate which is how the stick handles to give it tighter controls as the Hori comes with very loose controls.
    Change 4: Removed sticker and made my own
    Change 5: Removed all the original push buttons
    Change 6 Installed real arcade push buttons and switching the location of the Y with Left Trigger

    That is it!

    Awesome dude!
    I would like to do that one day with mine.
    Was it hard, like I never modded something like that, would I have load of problems to do it?
    But I have no problem doing Shorukens with my normal Hori Sticks. But the buttons sometimes get jammed for .25 secs sometime.
