Re-did my Round 1 TE Stick a while back with the TE-S Wooden Sides from FocusAttack.com.
Basically my intent was to sort of keep the look & feel of the TE-S sides but add a wood texture for a more natural (male) enhancement. I felt that the wood flows pretty well coupled with my Alpha/Young Ryu template that I’ve been using. I took the TE-S sides and using a propane torch burned the wood grain. Then I sanded them down to get rid of the char and ash. What you’re left with is a really cool, “old” and aged look. Then I taped off the burned portions to fill & paint all of the angled portions flat black. This way when you’re looking that the stick from a top-down view the now painted black portions flow with the control panel. After painting all of the angles black I stained the burned portions with a cherry wood varnish.
My first TE stick. Glad I snagged them before they were gone.
Welcome to the club!
This is my personal stick that I use for everything. It has served me well since I originally purchased it back in 2009 (?) when they were first released by Mad Catz. It has gone through quite a transformation since then from being completely stock to what it is now:
- Full Panel Artwork & Plexiglass.
- Original Ryu Art by Bengus.
- Template adapted by Nick Rox & Donovan Myers.
- 6-button Layout.
- Home/Turbo Section removed.
- Toodles Cthulhu PS3 PCB.
- Neutrik USB A/B Port.
- Added Seimitsu LS-33 Spring.
- Painted TE Wings Black.
- TvC Arrow Dustwasher.
- White Shaft Cover.
- Black Sanwa Meshball (New Design x_x)
- 1 Red & 5 White Sanwa OBSF-30s
Tony Mendez customized his Mad Catz SFIV Tournament Edition FightStick into a Wowee Zowee FightStick.
