Repair damaged serving

I was recently asked by a good friend, Mike Hogan, (a fellow of infinite jest) if I could do something about the damaged serving on the lower end of the bus cable on his Supra ME. I have had similar problems with my own Supra, and have seen fraying in the same spot on others, it seems to be at the transition from cam to module.

I have found that re-serving that area with 14 thou Halo, although not a fix for the problem, eliminates the symptom, so that is what I am going to do here.
