Picture of Rockband kickpedal fix/upgrade
Broke your rockband kickpedal? or maybe you just want to feel more intouch with Mother Nature when you are rocking out.
I used:
a scrap piece of wood (1/2")
0.98$ hinge from princess auto
dremel tool
key hole saw
sandpaper
drill and bits

FYI: when I started this project i didn't know about this wicked awesome website. If i would have known i would be giving step by step instructions I would have taken more pictures. But I think you can get the point from what I've got.
PS: I think the 'real' kickpedal/posterboard fix is wicked cool!

Step 1: Find a piece of wood (easy right?)

One day while rocking out, a friend tells me she can no longer play on her set because the pedal has broke :-(. Taking a look at my roommates no so broken kickpedal I tell her i will fix it for her.
I lucked out big time when I found this scrap piece of cedar siding in a dumpster from a neighbor's reno project. Used a key hole saw to get a ruff outline of the pedal (jig saw would have worked much better). I just moved into my new place and don't have all the tool/resources I used to have back on the old man's farm. So... winter tires double as a work bench (just be careful with the saw).

Step 2: Sand it down

unless you have feet like a samquach you're gona want to sand down the pedal. It makes it so much sexier too!
I found the hinge at princess auto (a surplus tool/random cool thing store) it had another side to it that i cut off with the dremel. All you really need is something that the pin (that the pedal pivots on) will fit through without too much play.

I used a CNC and cut the angles of a thin plate of metal and screwed it over the pedal itself... looks hardcore metal! .. great job by the way

haha when my pedal broke i used pieces of sheet metal and riveted them to the backs and fronts of the pedal and covered it with electrical tape. very nice!

I did something similar, bu instead of replacing my broken pedal entirely, I just screwed a decently rigid piece of wood to the plastic, and painted it black.
