Someone I know on Shryuken forums by the name Blk Lighting cut made the metal panel for me.
I came up with what I want to do and he worked with me to come up with a layout that would work on the hrap-ex.
For existing arcade sticks, as long as you have the under panel clearance and enough with a case would work.

The hrap 1,2,3, ex series arcade stick works for me because that case is large enough for my needs.
I wouldn't use a Mad Catz TE unless you want to dremel out ALOT of plastic.
Also the TE quite thin so some sticks will be difficult to fit properly will the clearance.

As for the joysticks them selves, I found mine on eBay, but you can get the same sticks on Paradise arcade
You could also source a pair of trigger sticks from a Sega Saturn or Dreamcast Twin Stick

You could go for Sanwa JFJ which are $90
The Seimtstu LSX-57-01 which are about 33.95 Euro or $48.17
And the LSX-57 lacks handles
Happ also make a Analog trigger arcade stick for about $120

And the more frugal route, the NES Quick shot can be found on eBay very cheap.

The art on top was done by myself, I wanted something that would follow the style on Virtual-On but still be my own work.
The front is called Counter Strike, as in the game from Value.
