I have used solid wire roughly the same diameter as your cables. Hardware stores or hobby shops carry the wire, usually called piano wire. Once you get the end through, tape your cable to the end and pull through the frame.

Run a string down the inside of the frame and pull it out the other end with a vacuum cleaner.

Coat hanger

I have used a wire coat hanger. Bend it straight and then bend the front half inch down at about a 45 degree angle (aprox) tape the cable to the other end and fish her through. The angled tip will make it easier to find the hole from the inside.
