4XV Piston Rings

Hi Guys,
I'm currently rebuilding my 4XV motor, and am about to install new rings on new pistons. I notice that the 2 Comp rings are different colors. One is black, and the other is a dark copper color (like a cola). I can't find anywhere in the manual that refers as to which ring is the top ring and which is the 2nd ring.
Does anyone know?

Cheers

Take it to the track.

So the shiny gold/brown ring is the top ring, and the Black ring is the 2nd ring.

Thanks for the help everyone.

Take it to the track.
