Brief Description:  Rework to install new rudder cables

I decided to send my uncut control cables back to zenith, along with the associated hardware, and purchase the newly available cut-to-length-and-terminated cables.

Since the fuselage was built assuming I'd thread the cables thru it and the fairleads, each metal penetration for the cable had to be opened up to 7/16" to allow the turnbuckle to pass. The fairleads needed to be cut to allow them to fit over the cable rather than have the cable threaded thru them.

Disassembled the front torque tube bearing assy, which also holds the rudder cable fairleads. Up-drilled the metal and cut a notch in the cable hole (holes remain same size since it's still 1/8" cable).

Did the same with the aft torque tube bearing support; removed the fairleads and drilled the metal, then cut the fairleads and re-riveted.
