Bob,

Will post more photos when it's ready for "after shots".

The through the chain stay routing was on a minority of Confentes. It consisted of three telescoped pieces of stainless tubing. The cable entered the chain stay about 2 inches form the BB shell, the tube diameter steps up to housing diameter just before it exits the chain stay, providing a stainless pocket for the end of the housing.
