Brief Description:  Rudder cabling continued

Started out by removing the ELT tray which was too close to the cabling inside the fuselage.

It was a royal pain getting the fairleads positioned inside the fuselage for the rudder cable exit so there was no metal to metal contact. Ended up being a lot of trial and error. In addition to the very shallow angle of exit from the fuselage to the rudder control horn, there is also a change in the vertical angle at the exit point which had to be dealt with. I ended up elongating and widening the pre-cut exit slits considerably. My fat arms also bear the cuts from repeated reaches into the upper access hole to position the fairleads. The only one in the house with arms thin enough to fit easily through the access hole is the dog, and hers are too short. Anyways, finally got an acceptable configuration to prevent metal to metal contact. Trimmed and fit the cable exit covers. Finally, swaged the turnbuckle ends of the cables and used a tension gauge to set the cable tension. As with the other cables, I will clean up the swaging and safety wire later.
