    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.

    Designed for Hori RAP4 Kai (PS3/PS4), RAPV Kai (XBOne/XB360), Switch

    Hori RAP 4 (PS3/PS4) Hori RAP V (Xbox One/Xbox 360 Hori RAP Nintendo Switch
    RAP4, RAPV Kai, Switch Panel Template Not Japanese import model, Not V4 Hayabusa (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.  A 1/30" thin acrylic film is utilized for this.

    Note: This product is not compatible with the Japanese import RAP V (PS3/PS4).  Please choose this model instead. The import RAP V (Xbox One/Xbox 360) model  - which has a red panel - is also not compatible.  We cannot confirm whether the import PS3/PS4 model will match that model's panel as we do not own that hardware.

    This model is also not compatible with the older RAP V4 Hayabusa with red panel. Please choose Blank Plexi Cover for Hori RAP V3-SA VX-SA instead.

    Options include Vewlix button layout, choice to remove start button, and 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.  

    Replacement Screws and Washers Included

    You will receive black panhead screws specifically designed to bore into plastic, to assist with a top-load install.  Washers are also included to compensate for the countersink of the original metal panel once the original panel screws are removed from the bottom of the FightStick.

    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. Good, but some pointers

      Plexi came with black screws and washers to put underneath the screw holes. There seems to still be some bending on the plexi near the screws after installation, though. Screwing in the holes was a bit difficult and a really tight fit. I would also recommend people wipe the plexi itself with the detailer first and dry it out before installing it. My plexi also had a small scratch on mine, but I'm not sure if it was because I flipped it over on my lap or not. on Jun 30th 2021

    2. Fit perfectly

      This item fit my stick perfectly. Just remember, you'll have to remove the existing HORI RAP 4 Kai vinyl decal to put this on. on Nov 30th 2020

    3. Easy installation and feels good to play on

      Clear cover is easy to install and keeps my art looking clean. The cover feels like the stock face which is nice to play on. on Feb 9th 2020

    4. fantastic stuff for the Hori

      We all know the Hori can be a minor nuisance with art customization on the RAP 4. With this Plexi it makes easy as sin and stylish to show off your art. on Nov 3rd 2019

    5. Great, but not perfect

      This cover fits over my Hori Rap 4 perfectly, however I was expecting a harder material. The acrylic is thick, but fairly soft, so putting the bolts on too tight bends the edges upwards and, and putting it on too loosely, well, leaves it loose.
      Even though I hit pretty good sweet spot on the bolts, you can still see s little indent where they go, and the edges do bend up a little bit. It's not a deal breaker, but a solid piece of plexiglass would be preferable
      on Sep 17th 2019

    6. Great product

      The plexiglass came quick, no scratches, no dents no bends. I would highly recommend this to anyone. on Aug 28th 2019

    7. Just as great as last time!

      I ordered this exact product for my main Rap4 a bit over half a year ago and the quality of the plexi is just as great! The delivery was pretty fast again. (two weeks from U.S. to europe) Great product quality, fast delivery and order processing. Overall really pleased again! on Jul 22nd 2019

    8. Great

      The plexi is well made and it fits really good,no complains at all there, however I don't like the screws too much, they are a bit tall imo, I'd like to have a flat head screws as an option and diferent colors as well. on May 13th 2019

    9. Great quality with quick shipping.

      The shipping was fast (US - Finland). It took about 10days which was way faster than I expected. The product was really well and safely packaged. The quality of the plex was great and it didn't have any scratches and was cut really well. It doesn't have any bulging or bending anywhere as long you don't tighten the screws too tight. I'm really satisfied with this product and service overall. on Apr 12th 2019

    10. Feels good but some issues

      I'm not sure if it's because I picked matte for my art, but even though the plexi size is perfect, it does bulge up around where the joystick is. Otherwise it's a great product that fits the Hori and matches all cutouts. on Oct 29th 2018
