if you're looking at sleeving them heatshrinkless, there is a thread around here somewhere I have seen it, not sure where it is though
Basically this way of doing it you put shrink on it then keep melting it until it snaps. This means that the braiding beneath it all has melted sufficiently to hold on to the wires without the need for heatshrink. However, my only fear is how strong that will leave them when you move on to doing the next end.
I also would expect that there is multiple ways of doing it as well.
