The ultimate cd32 Joystick...

Well, my cd32 joypad broke on me (no suprise there!), so I decided to take it apart to fix it. Then it struck me, why just fix a problem when it'll keep happening over and over again? So I decided to completely rebuild the cd32 pad into a nice arcade style joystick.

I bought a replacement joystick at a local spare parts store for about $12 (never liked gamepads anyways). It's manufactured by Happ. Right now, I have to order the push buttons and build a box, so this is a work in progress. I'll try to keep things updated here though.

The pictures are of the cable, the circuit board, and the joystick.
