Now my rods looks like this.

Just drill small default hole with drill bits MANUALLY with step of 0.5 mm to 6 mm.
You can see small piece of tube (taken from pen) hot glued on leading edge. It prevent rudder rod from unneccessary bend. When it's bend rudder works worse.
In fuselage I glued small piese of tube (taken from foam sprey) which hold 6x75 mm nylon bolt in proper position and doesn't allow smash the fuselage when you screw it in.

I like your PVC motor mount! Would you mind explaining exactly what type of adapter it is? I live in the USA and unfortunately PVC is measured in English units. Do you think a 3/4" to 1 1/4" adapter would work?
