Sweet. It looks like you have some reversed faces (dark grey as opposed to light grey/white). Are you familiar with the concept in Sketchup of face orientation? It doesn't matter much when you're only interested in getting a model but I remember it confusing the willies out of me when I got started and I tried applying textures to components.

Simply select the face(s) you want to reverse, right click and select "Reverse Faces" from the context menu. You could also select one face which you know to be correctly oriented, right click on it and select "Orient Faces" from the context menu. This will let Sketchup orient all other faces according to the selected one. It doesn't always get it right, especially when the component has particularly complex geometry but in a model such as this one it shouldn't have any problems figuring it out.
