Angry double braid eye splice

For some time now I have been trying to put an eye splice in 1/4" double braid. I for the life of me can't do it! I tried the New England Ropes method and the fid jams up in the aria where the core goes thru the cover (in at "C" and out at "D"), I need to know the right fid diameter and if possable another method of doing it. I bought 100' and now down to 88', I need to have 78' for my topping lift I'm putting in the mast then to the cockpit. I'm really frustrated now and trying very hard at not to make mention of words that will definately get me expelled from SailNet.
