Thanks again for the input.
That cable that comes thru the upper right side of the instrument panel is frayed around the loop. The one that's connected to the bar that's attached to the blue knob. (I'm still trying to figure out what the function of that knob is?)
Another thing about wires on the right side of the fuselage that are underneath the elevator rod is just a bad place. I've had two airplanes that had the wires put there and if they got loose they always rubbed against the elevator pushrod. The wire bundle hold downs glued to the side are a good idea if thats where you want to keep that wiring.
The steel cable mentioned (linked to the blue knob) is the pitch trim (ala original VariEze plans). A few strands of the cable are frayed outside at the very end of the cable, but they are outside/past the collar. I'll snip them off.
Wiring bundles: your reply brings up an interesting point: I worked all the wiring details in before finishing up the canard paint job, so I never thought about potential conflicts between the wire bundles and the canard pushrods. I will do a test fit asap to see if I have any problems there. Also, I haven't done this yet, but I'm planning on building a lightweight snap-on/off cover (just a 2-ply BID layup) to cover up/protect all the wires on the right and left side of the fuselage which are anywhere near wandering feet and the elevator pushrod.
