    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.

    RAP N Panel Template Kai layout, not DOA5 model (1.7Mb zip)

    Hori's models have varied in joystick and button placement.  This model adopts the "Kai" layout, which positions the joystick further left from the buttons. The modern Hori RAP series was not designed for custom artwork, so it requires removing the top artwork panel via hair-dryer or heat gun, the glue underneath the panel (what remains on the metal panel) via Goo-Gone or similar. This model uses our .030" thin acrylic.

    Options include 6 or 8 button Noir layout, removing Control Panel (often requested when using multi-console PCBs), removing the start/option button (hidden under the square lid) and removing bottom middle screw.

    Slim, Durable Configuration. Laser Cut Layout

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

    How to Install

    Hori RAP N Install Step 1 Hori RAP N Install Step 2 Hori RAP N Install Step 3

    First, remove the panel screws with a 3mm hex key.  You will find that the panel pulls away from the housing easily.  Take care to remove the 5-pin harness from the joystick. Once the panel is separated from the housing, remove the wires from buttons.  Observe the wiring color to buttons, first row from top: Blue = [], Purple = /\, Grey = R1, Red = L1; second row: Orange = X, Yellow = O, Green = R2, Black = L2. Carefully lift the buttons from the panel by pinching in the tabs at left and right of each button and pushing up.

    Next you must remove the RAP N artwork panel.  The artwork is glued onto the metal panel.  To remove it, use a heat-gun or hair dryer, warming one corner of the panel until you are able to lift and separate the plastic from metal.

     Continue to use the heat gun on the underside of the plastic and slowly lift the plastic panel.  You may have some residue from the process, which you can clean using Goo-Gone or similar solution.

    You will re-use the screws on the RAP N to complete the installation; please do not throw them away. Place the panel back onto the plastic frame, then artwork, and finally plexi.  You can then reinstall buttons and wiring, then joystick.  Finally, replace screws and tighten using hex key.  

    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 here.new-window-icon.png 
    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. better than my old

      Had one from another merchant and wasnt happy but this one is solid. The cut was very precise and is holding up to my few weeks of abuse. It doesnt move or shift etc. I dont care scratches cause thats gonna happen just by touching it, just like a guitars finish. so if you care about scratches buff them out every once in a while. regardless, my main purpose was to make a 6 button layout from the stock layout and its doing its job. I will better getting one for my DOA5 soon. on Feb 14th 2021

    2. Nice piece of plastic, perfect fit for my HRAP N Hayabusa!

      I like the original art in my Hori HRAP N Hayabusa so, like my Hori Soul Calibur V joystick, I ordered a plexi to preserve the original art.
      The plexi fit perfectly and does not distort the appearance of my panel. You hardly notice it! You only thing you notice is that over time the plexi WILL get dirty and crud from your skin and sweat but that's the whole point -- the plexi gets the dirt but your original or custom art gets preserved. The plexi will preserve the value of the joystick AND make clean up easier.
      This is the first plexi I ordered from Focus Attack and it arrived sooner than I expected in all honesty. I'm glad to see it's of at least equal quality to what I've experienced from another vendor and that it fit my stick's faceplate with no notable distortion. That's a HUGE thing for me! I've gotten plexis that were unfortunately distorted or didn't fit very or didn't cover completely. This plexi was cut well!
      I imagine I will order more plexis in the near-future because I have 2 collectible joysticks I do want to preserve the original faceplates of.

    3. Awesome

      Very happy with how the product was fabricated. Packaging was well done to avoid creasing of paper. on Sep 24th 2020

    4. After a week later 2 issues

      So number one, the Plexi is pretty soft and easy scratch. Accidentally dropped my ball top while installing it and it left a very noticeable scratch in the Plexi... I have a couple of other scratches I have no idea where they came from. So basically you have to baby it.

      And number two. Get the bottom screw. I don't know why but the bottom keeps lifting up. I push down and out before I tighten the corner screws. But still creeps up. Really wish I got the bottom screw. :/

      Overall great a product. But definitely not perfect.

    5. Perfection

      I ordered this along with artwork and it sits perfectly flush. Very happy with the quality and the ease to install. Highly recommend. on Mar 2nd 2020

    6. Perfect fit

      It came exactly as ordered with all the details I entered. Perfect fit and good quality for my Hori. It holds up well under use and doesn’t scratch super easily which is nice. Easy to clean and the thickness is bang on, not to thin and not too thick. Really happy I got it done here! on Dec 4th 2019

    7. It works

      I have Hrap 4 hayabusa. This fits it perfectly. on Oct 21st 2019

    8. Great product

      Great product. On the top left, you should make sure to pull that corner tight before screwing it in. It fits really well. on Jul 22nd 2019

    9. Exactly what I expected.

      Came pretty much perfect. The screw holes might have been off by the smallest amount but it looks perfect on my stick. I will be ordering again for my other stick soon. If I was a less patient person I would have likely dropped a star for the several week wait time. 4.9/5 on Apr 14th 2018
