    I'd be grateful if you could pass me the direct number for the dulux lab. I have never managed to get it.

    So given that we have both admitted that we are speculating- are you willing to apologise to jack- it would be the mature thing to do.

    No of course not. This is a DIY forum and he is asking daft questions. Let him contact Dulux - they like a good laugh.

    I thought you said you WERE a decorator? (Even though you can't paint without tramlines) :rolleyes:

    Now just hang on a minute here.
    The answer to his question is YES and that's what I said.

    Good enough?

    Actually, "Growler" did reply to my question by referring to the points I raised. At first I was not sure on the content of the reply but on reading it again "Growler" did actually provide some positive feedback.

    Could I suggest that we all move on and let the dust settle on this one?

    Thanks opps. Very decent.

    We all have different opinions/ways, skills, sometimes as I'm sure you know that I do. ;)

    Right.... I'm off to watch Ann Widdecombe glide across the dancefloor.

    I usually finish my glossing outside, or even in unheated insides by 4pm if it feels like a frost coming. Had bad experiences on building site where we glossed all the doors in four flats finished ' 5pm. There was a frost. next day all the glosswork we had done had either bloomed/ flashed or the gloss was completely flat.
    not good when on peicework.
    The other occasion was a lovely day in late may, decided to stop on and gloss all the fascia/soffit and all done by 7pm. It turned quite misty and gloomy.. Next day all the kn gloss had turned matt..not good when self employed :evil: still it was a good undercoat only had to regloss all :rolleyes:
