Thanks for the comment. My dad mentioned the pin arrangements as well, so I edited that step to point out the color-to-pin relationship. As to the reconditioning advice, I wasn't sure if that would be safe in my case. The plastic around the plug blades was pretty melted. Also, I wasn't sure if the heat had annealed the brass (and whether that is even a problem or not). Thanks again!
