Yep. I guess I forgot to upload that part. I used a couple of YouTube videos for guidance (Google “how to solder cable ends”). I used the scrap wood method and did it with everything assembled. Worked like a charm but I suggest you practice on the old cable a couple of times to get the technique and sizing down. The other option is using a universal ferrule (end piece) which most bike shops carry. I couldn’t find the right size but apparently they do exist. Obviously much easier but not sure if they would stand up to the day in day out use on a sliding door. Good luck!
