Mutilate a $30.00 piece of machinery!!!!!!!
Step 1: Step 1: Disassembly
There are 8 screws total in the back. In all the holes plus one in the center of the battery compartment
Step 2: Step 2
Now that the case is open. Remove the rumble motors. Just rip 'em off the board and save them for another project. BE SURE not to lose the x o square and triangle buttons or you'll be really pissed later. There are some little black cylinders in D-pad but you don't need to keep if don't want to. I didn't seeing as how i lost them all. Keep all the the clear and blue contact pads and put them to the side. Then clip the bottom edges of the board where the rumble motors were. you don't really have to destroy the board. you could grind it all down and glue batter it but i wanted to be able to still press the buttons.
Step 3: Step 3
Time to make space! Start with going outside cause it was a tad messy with all the platic gobs everywhere. Dremel out the areas where the rumble motors were. You don't have to grind the inside perfectly smooth but just get out as much as you can. On this controller there are 3 posts at the top of the controller handles. Remove the middle post on each side.
Step 4: Yay!!!!! almost done
Now for the actual cutting of the controller.
On the outside of the controller cut into the top side. Just make it deep enough to where your belt fits and it looks good to you. Then make sure the hole is wide as possible without cutting out the remaining supports or screw holes. On the inside of the controller do the same thing.
Step 5: Step 5
This particular controller is battery powered. There is a little LED in the board and i wanted to keep it so i didn't grind down the board except the edges to get the most room out of the handles. some of you who know electronics could get it to work off a watch battery or glue batter all the buttons shut and make this work but you don't have to stick solely to my instructions. if you don't want to keep the LED lit you could cut up the battery compartment and make some kind of super fragilistic hidden compartment for odds and ends and to keep your mom from throwing away a whole goddamn box of condoms.
Are you lazy shithead? no time? No Dremel?
