Rudder Stops

I finally got the pesky rudder stops done..  Second time is a charm I guess in this case.  The first ones I drilled ended up allowing too much swing of the rudder.   Correctly built, the stops should stop the rudder when it is 1 and 1/8th inch from the elevator.   You have to get this pretty darn accurate or else the crimped end of the cable up by the peddle will start hitting the first bulkhead.  I am pretty sure it isn't a good idea to allow that first bulkhead to stop the rudder by hitting the crimp on the cable.

In a recent order from Vans I got the Passenger warning placard..  Check this out, pretty cool hey?  Do you think this will scare anyone off ?
