Post Replacing a CV Boot

I need to replace a torn left front outboard CV boot in my '91 Chevy K2500. Since I'm blissfully new to the whole concept of IFS I've never done one before but I'm planning to do it myself. I still need to pick up a Chilton manual at some point but my question is, do I need to have a special crimping tool to get the clamps on correctly or is there some little backyard mechanic trick I can use that would be just as effective.

NAPA has replacement boots that are split and use a super glue like stuff to hold it together. You will also need the pliers to crimp the bands.
If the boot has been torn for awhile it would be a good idea to pull the shaft and either rebuild it or buy another one.
