Hey, that looks very good.. I'm glad it worked out.

Ironically I was converting my funny bike with internal cable routing from its track configuration to its road configuration just yesterday, and for the first time I couldn't get the rear der. cable to get all the way through the chainstay. I'm pretty sure that it doesn't have cabling on the inside, but it might either have a metal guide (tube) or little funnels at either side to help guide it (despite welding new dropouts on it, I still haven't really had a chance to inspect). Twisting the cable helped but not before 30 minutes of frustration.

Internal routing can be a *****. Oh, and if you want that to look better, you could easily grind down the open end of the ferrule, but it no doubt helps orient the housing, and it doesn't look too bad, so I'd keep it.

I'd also love more pics of the entire bike, it looks beautiful.
