Lazy Jacks for the poor person.

I want to put lazy jacks on Lola, my Bayfield 25. Now i can't afford a $200 kit from Harken so I'm going to make my own. Ive looked at a few boats that have them and they seem pretty easy to rig up myself. Ive got alot of 1/4'' line for the running line part, but I've noticed that most have wire going from the mast to the blocks. I''m just going to use my 1/4'' line tied to the blocks and the eye-straps on the mast. I bought a micro cheek block and 2 of the "key chain" blocks today. Ive got the eye straps and a small cleat already. Anything I'm missing here?
