Cables and more

Well today I worked on prep work for installing control cables.

Inspected the Aileron cables (I have two sets) and both were defective. One was showing broken strands near the ball swage. So I ordered new ones.

Cleaned and inspected Rudder cables and they passed. I will be using CRC SP350 to lubricate and protect them as it is MIL-C-16173 approved.

Also (dry fit) installed the top birdcage with the use of clecos. It’s nice to see things going on!
