Transplanting "painstick" cables to a new set of sticks.

This is such a great idea.  One of those "why didn't I think of that?" ideas. 

Does anyone have pictures of the innards of the sticks?  I just wonder the length of wire there is to work with internally, and whether they used connectors (like Atari) or soldered the wires in.

Connect them to one controller with two sticks and two buttons?

Sure!  There are lots of different options really, you could put better joysticks on each line, or you could make a double stick job like you said with two buttons, which could be really cool for a tank game, or you could have a single stick with two buttons.

I’m working on a Nintendo style Gamepad with two buttons.

Please keep us up-to-date on your project.  I suck with gamepads, but I'm thinking my portable system would enjoy using one... especially if your next game makes use of it.
