Cable penetrations done

Nothing too exciting tonight. I laid out and drilled the screw holes for the remaining two eyeball fittings and fabricated the aluminum spacer necessary to make the outboard one cooperate with the adjacent firewall angle. With that done, I got the backplates mounted, and went ahead and assembled the rest of the eyeballs in place. The last part is kind of extra work – they’ll have to come apart again when the control cables get installed – but this is as good a way as any to store the remaining pieces. Better this than to go searching for a bag of stuff in a month or so…

Also, I’m equal parts annoyed and amused that each fitting ended up rotated off the vertical in the same direction and about the same amount:

I guess now there’s not much left to do but to hang the engine again and start having some real fun.
