BB cable routing

I'm not sure if this is right place to post this question, but you guys are building frames, so I'm sure you've put a lot of thought into little things. I'm "personalizing" a 74 Raleigh International that someone prior to me made some serious modifications to (moving lots of braze ons, stripping the chrome etc). I want to rebuild the bike as a Constructeur style bike, lots of braze ons and hopefully seamless integration of add ons. Currently the bike has under the BB cable routing, should I leave it (the PO also moved the chainstay cable guide from on top of the chainstay to underneath it). Is there any benefit to having the cable under the BB or should I move it back the way it was? I'm sure I'm going to have many questions as I progress through this build. I plan on practicing my brazing skills on a trash picked U-O8 before I work on the International. I've done lots of plumbing so I think I have the concept down.... We shall see

What advantage is there to having the cable guides on top of the BB?? Under the BB is probably lighter and definitely less vulnerable to damage. That and top-mount guides are unobtainum anymore. Just leave that part as is.

there is probably a lifetime supply of old campy guides out there in junk boxes. That being said, under bb guides are easier to keep clean.

True. FWIW, Nova still sells them.
