I have been a fan of Dance Dance Revolution since I was inspired by couple DDR players in LA arcades. After that I had search for the game and checked out local arcades for any machines that I can go practice in. To this day, I still like going to the arcades and dance but I also like to dance at home since I got most of the DDR games on the PS2 console and PC. The softpads start to wear off quickly after a year and even with the more durable RedOctane Ignition soft pad does not last long with me dancing heavy songs. So me and my friend started to build our own metal pad. We followed ddrhomepad's guide to build the metal pad. Below are the pictures of the building process and the finish metal pad.
