Default Through the fiberglass bottom fairing

I have electric elevator and aileron trim, both wire bundles just have flexible sheathing over them and pass through simple grommets . If I were doing rudder trim, I'd run mine down through the rudder into lower fairing and into the fuselage with same wire I have going to tail beacon. A multi wire plug would facilitate rudder install, but add weight/failure point. You could just terminate splice at servo and leave service loop. If you send a message to Pat Hatch (On here), he has a very nice rudder trim on his -6 he may share details about. At the point of assembly you are in, you may want to entertain an integrated tab similar to the elevator tab for a better look over all. I did that with my aileron trim tab, and glad I did. A bit harder to make/install, but the end result is nicer. I don't know if the zipper T/E is an issue though.

Default I highly recommend the Aerosport rudder trim

It works great. Easy rudder use on takeoff and landing. Helps with wind as gust protection on the ground. Set it and forget it. It will save you $, and most importantly TIME,
