    A few years ago, I posted a series of pictures documenting how I took apart an MC120 plug. The original post is half way down this page: J1772 Charging for the Tesla Roadster - Page 3

    Since then, a few of you have asked for more detailed instructions, so I put this document together: Opening a Tesla Roadster plug - Google Docs

    Some of you are also curious about where to buy new pins to upgrade a given plug to 70A. There are some links in that same original thread with the name of the pin manufacturer and potential distributors. I'm not sure how up to date that information is...
    Since I traded in my Roadster for a Model S a year ago, I haven't kept up with the latest Roadster developments (if any?)...
