What did you guys & ladies use to
open up the pass through tubes. I
broke a drill bit on the first one.

Please let me know!

Merry Christmas!

I used a long drill bit for the openings and then used a file and whatever else I could find.   :o
Was pretty tough.  I broke and dulled many a bit in this process.

Little round files in Dremel plus drill bits.

If you're talking about the guides for the rudder pedal cables down the baggage compartment then I used reamer bits.  They were expensive but worth it in the long run.

Thanks guys.

I just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed
some neat trick. If you all had trouble with
them, then I guess it's OK for me too!

Merry Christmas!

Hey,
 I finished the rest of the holes with the
broken drill bit. I figured it was toast,
so I had nothing to lose.

See Ya!
