When the rudder cables were made, I left one end open. I didn't want to make them to a specific length but rather mark the last end with the cables in place. After centering the rudder and centering the rudder bar, I reinstalled the cables and marked the location of the last splices. Here are the right side rudder cables.
And the left side rudder cables.
At the rudder horn, the cables are joined together with a common shackle.
I have the first two ends of the elevator cables spliced. Six more ends to go!
John Gaertner got the wing pins back from the plating company. Can't wait to install them!
More next week. We have a big Veterans Day Event at the museum this weekend.
