    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 Hori Fighting Edge (PS4 Only). Install Notes

    Hori Fighting Edge (2017 PS4 Model)
    Fighting Edge Panel Template (2017 PS4 Model, 1.7Mb zip)

    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:


    Hori Edge PS4 Artwork/Plexi Install - Step 1 Hori Edge PS4 Artwork/Plexi Install - Step 2
    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.
    Hori Edge PS4 Artwork/Plexi Install - Step 3 Hori Edge PS4 Artwork/Plexi Install - Step 4
    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.
    Hori Edge PS4 Artwork/Plexi Install - Step 5 Hori Edge PS4 Artwork/Plexi Install - Step 6
    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.
    Hori Edge PS4 Artwork/Plexi Install - Step 7 Hori Edge PS4 Artwork/Plexi Install - Step 8
    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.  This model uses our .060" thick acrylic.

    Options Help

    You have several options to personalize your control panel, such as button layout, removal of control panel or screws in some models


    Plexi Color, Thickness

    Below are visual examples of available acrylic colors and thicknesses.  Not all colors are available for each thickness, nor are the materials and thicknesses accessible for each Fightstick model. Some colors come in a specific thickness, and are too thin or thick to install properly on the Fightstick. Additionally, some material thicknesses do not allow for full etch, as the material can warp from the laser. 

    When multiple colors and thicknesses are available for your Fightstick model, you will find them within the options list.

    Plexi Thickness

    Plexi Thickness: .75mm thin acrylic
    Plexi Thickness: 1.5mm thick acrylic
    Plexi Thickness: 3mm thick acrylic

    Plexi Color and Texture

    Plexi Texture: Clear
    Plexi texture: Black Gloss
    Plexi texture: Black Matte
    Plexi texture: White Gloss
    Plexi texture:White Matte
    Clear (.75mm, 1.5mm, 3mm) 
    Black Gloss (1.5mm, 3mm)
    Black Matte (3mm only)
    White Gloss (3mm only)
    White Matte (3mm only)

    Notes about Black Matte, White Matte & White Gloss

    Black Matte Sample 1: No Etching
    Black Matte: Sample 2
    Black Matte is available in .125" (3mm) thickness only. This color and material texture can be purchased without etching. For AllFightsticks models, you can use the black matte plexi panel as a full replacement for the metal panel.
    You can also order with partial or full etching. Unlike clear acrylic, etching is performed on surface of the acrylic.  If you are submitting etch artwork for opaque acrylic such as black matte or black gloss, you do not need to reverse the graphic. More tips on how to submit artwork for etching is available 
    White Matte: Sample 1
    White Matte: Sample 2
    White Gloss and White Matte is available in .125" (3mm) thickness only. This color and material texture can be purchased without etching. For AllFightsticks models, you can use the white matte plexi panel as a full replacement for the metal panel.
    We currently do not offer etching services for White Gloss or White Matte color.  While it is possible to etch on white acrylic, we believe many customers will not be pleased with the results, since the etch is barely visible.

    White acrylic is also semi translucent - about 20% transparent.  You will receive a white cutout that you can place underneath the acrylic.  You can also place a brightly colored artwork underneath for a cool effect.

    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. Great replacement for art

      The plexiglass is great quality and really showcases the art underneath. Holes are precise and everything is just the right size. Always a pleasure to order these. on Nov 11th 2022

    2. Updated Review

      I originally had issues with this product. Since then, Management has reached out to me and provided great customer service to resolve my issue. Great company, they take care of their customers. on Jun 11th 2020

    3. Well made product

      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 one on Apr 13th 2019

    4. 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 plexiglass on Jan 30th 2019
