is there a spot for the transistor! If so where would that be. And check this out, I put the 1k resistor back in R1 and I flipped the the IC around. As per that, is it the top part of the IC that needed to be flipped? Or the entire thing?(bottom portion too meaning did I need to resolder?). I’m sorry about the same wire color. I used what they included in the kit which was just black and red. I followed the diagram on the build site with that so that should be correct anyway. I’m going to send a couple more pictures let me know what you think. I REALLY appreciate your help.
