Replace iCade buttons with high quality SANWA buttons

You may have followed my previous articles about modding iCade to create ultimate bartop arcade to fit all my retro gaming needs.

Here they are again in case you have missed them:

One thing that bugged me about iCade was how loud the buttons were. Spring action was a bit too loud for my taste, so I saw a lot of guys opted out to mod it and replace the buttons with Sanwa buttons.

I decided to do the same, but to replace just 6 buttons I use for gaming and leave the old two most right since I use them as Start and Select buttons.

I found a good deal on eBay for $15.99 including shipping you will get 6 Sanwa buttons and you can even choose colors between: Red/Yellow/Blue/Green/Black/White/Orange/Pink.
