31B-25 Over Rudder Wireway

This guy was conceptually simple, but a royal PIA to install.  It isn’t even very visible in the picture, but if you look close you can see a metal tab (with a punched hole) under the wiring bundle and over the rudder torque tubes.  That little metal tray was inserted over the torque tubes and then held with a screw into a previously placed nut placed.  Well, trying to line up that screw into the nut plate when you can’t see either one, and can’t actually hold/touch the screw, and can’t be in two places at once...  well, you get the idea.  I got lots of creative ideas using an awl, rivet stems, flashlights and (literally) blind luck.   Got it.  Eventually.
