Default Cabin Heat Control Routing

HI All,

Hoping someone can help out with a picture/and or ideas for routing the cabin heat control cable, such that the knob is located on the RHS Gear box.

What I am particularly intersted in is what neat way is there of doing this through the baggage compartment without it being in the way in there.

Any help appreciated!!

Not that easy to see but this picture shows it a little bit.

I just kept the bowden cable under the angle along the FW, a small notch in the vertical part of the baggage sidewall, and then under the angle from the FW back to the gear tower.

These are the very standard bowden cables that everyone seems to use. There may be more modern ways to do this with something newer. I recently had that arm on the stainless steel heater valve fail so I had to re-rivet it on.
