The pictures in steps 44, 45, & 46 (as well as those in ch. 09 part 01 steps 11 & 12) show the T0 cable with the pink/red wire on the left & the black wire on the right. Are these images correct ? (And does it matter for this cable? I notice the wires of the T1 cable are not color coded.)

The cables I received for 10 Easy Kit Heated JellyBOX v2.1.b.b.2 are all stickered so that, if the label sticker faces up, the T0 black wire is on the left and the pink/red is on the right.

Thanks.
