I got started on my Drag/Anti-Drag cables. I installed the eye turnbuckle ends and thimbles and crimped the fittings, then used adhesive lined heat shrink tubing to cover the cable ends. Each cable was cut to length leaving approximately 1 foot extra in order to finish up the cable ends once I get my shackles.
Roger White loaned me his Nicopress tool and cable cutters. They work great.
