Replacing octogate with squaregate in Tekken 5 stick

Ok, so I searched to see if there was any threads relevant to this and couldn’t find any. I’ve had this stick for a long time, but never really used it as I didn’t like the octogate, and am much more used to square gates now.

I want to replace the octogate and put a square gate in and depending on how difficult other mods are, I might change some other things. I’ve seen pics of these sticks with different art and the leftmost buttons taken out (L1 and L2, I think).

Does anyone have any links to tutorials or something similar that would help?

I figure I can order the square gate from lizardlick or, or am I wrong?
