Yeah so the red wires from the main are connected to the black and white wires at the terminal bar.  Those black and white wires come in from the power cord.  Ideally, I'd like to have the PID come on with the front switch on the machine.  How do I identify a neutral wire?

When I PID'd my OWC I used a piggyback connector on the top left hand switch connection to take a switched live feed to the PID. You have marked it 1 on the HB thread. The neutral was taken from the unused spade connection on the right hand heating element post. My OWC is UK spec but the connections are probably the same as yours.

Do you have a volt meter or Digital Multi Meter?  You already have the connection at the back post, probably neutral to 9.  Find the switched lead on the front switch.  You can identify the front switch hot lead with a volt meter and then see which terminal is switched on and off.

I just recently picked one up; but I realized I like having the PID and heater on a switch, independent from the machine.

So here's the final product:
