Rudder Guides for cables runs

The front rudder cables were the first cables I prepared. Now, with the rear end signed off, I can complete the long running cables that go from the pilot rudder pedals to the rear rudder horn.

These run through small metal guides under the pilot seat which prevent them fouling on the bodywork. Further, to prevent the twisted steel cable chafing against the metal bracket there are small paxolin plates shped, drilled and bolted to the metal bracket so that the rudder control cable rubs against paxolin instead of metal.
