Prusa upgrade kits

Been printing all the parts for the upgrade to mk3

However i printed everything in colorfabb XT clear. But I read somewhere the extruder body is done in black so no light can get to the filament sensor. Can someone confirm this ?

Mine is Black, on an orange printer and there is a black wedge to fill in a slot on the filament pressure roller housing, so I guess it's important!

Yes, it has to be black to keep light out (Josef mentioned it in one of the launch videos of the MK3 where they had to cover the prototype orange extruder body with foil to keep the sunlight out).
