Buy bulk wire of the right size. Install spreaders. Get a local rigger to swage the upper ends or use Hayn Hi-Mods which are easy to use and will not require a rigger. Leave them long and hold the mast up temporarily with 4 lines and the rigging attached to the mast. Get it in column. Do the lower ends one at a time with Hayn Hi-Mods.
