    Need a little help. In the process of redesigning / updating the lighted applique for the

    Model “S”. looking for someone around the Philadelphia area that has a Model “S” build

    after June of 2017.


    The exchange is you get the first redesigned / updated Applique I get to trace all the wires

    so that we can design the next Controller / Light Board

    I live in Langhorne, just North of Philly, and have a S75 June 2017 build. What kind of dismantling are we talking here? And how much of a downtime?

    I don't want to touch the CAN bus. Tesla will get bent out of shape if any one does that.

    Why would they? We’re doing it for the camera switcher project. Important to note that we are just reading from (not writing anything to) the Chassis CAN bus, which is accessible on pins 1 and 9 on the model s/x OBD port.

    Seems much less intrusive than tapping wires to me *shrug* (not to mention you can just unplug the adapter if you need to ever undo it)
