Never got out for the haircut in the end. Used to go to a Turkish joint up on Aungier Street and they always did a great job.


Skin up dude!


Howdy ho campers - quick question on painting! Just glossed two large built in wardrobes doors. I glossed them out the back but they are picking up particles of dust and the odd random midget fly. So million dollar question do I give it a light sanding and touch up? What grade of sandpaper? Cheers folks

I can offer you nothing in return except a detail analysis of sans serif typefaces from 1950 - 1990!



Ah man , did you do that because of the smell of the gloss ? Fraid so about sanding it again . A light grade should do it to create the key again . If its only a few particles I wouldn’t bother at all . Because once you start you might end up painting the whole door again . Gloss is evil .


No I didn’t mind the smell just awkward fecking things to paint hanging. I’ll see what they are like in the morning hopefully they won’t be that bad.


Yeah sleep on it , hopefully it’ll be alright .


If you have a problem never gloss over it. And as my late Mam used to say ‘a problem shared is a good laugh for the rest of us.’


Did your late ma have any advice on plastering?


No but she was never impressed when I arrived home plastered … which was very often … :flushed:


Anybody could look at a tax return for me? It’s all done, and the Revenue sent back their calculations, I just want a brief explanation of what they sent so I can be sure all relevant outgoings were included. It’s a long story, I can’t easily ask the Revenue themselves this question, it’s been dragging on for ages, just want a quick clarification before I set up a payment plan


Made a bollox of the doors well done JJF. Thought the paint was dry went to move and made a big indent in the fucking thing. Felt smashing them up. So I’ll have to wait a few weeks either to sand them down to the bare bones or try and find a cheap replacement. Feck it anyway.


JJF, if you have the time rub down & repaint with oil base eggshell. Dulux is the business. Much easier to apply & far more durable.


Cheers I’m going to leave for a few weeks to let them dry out and then sand the bollox out of them and maybe use that paint you suggested. The gloss sanded down should give it a bit of base


Crap . I got a one coat gloss which was great . Patience is the key really . I’d sand the whole door again & repaint . Its weird that weren’t dry over night . I’d do it indoors the next time .


That’s how they got Al Capone in the end , wasn’t it ?
