Default RV-8 Ruddder pedals spring

Hi All,

I tried several time to find information about how to install spring on a RV-8 rudder pedals, so rudder cable will not scratch my fuselage floor, also I don't want the rudder going free with the wind when the aircraft is out of hangar. As I didn't find any I come with this solution. Please check the pics and let me know what do you think.

Happy Flying

Ouch. Allow me to re-size those for you. A little shrinkage, if you will:
