Connecting the Jumper Wires

Now that you have the top chassis piece down, it is time to connect the jumper wires - it's really important that the connections are right. Please remember that the jumper wire color is meant to help lessen confusion when making connections. However, the actual color of jumper wires does not matter as long as the connections from pin to pin are correct.
