Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Manx D, is correct in his recommendation about screw length etc, but you can still get a problem with the fixing crushing the PB.

So, I always mark it out, drill an oversize hole and inject the hole with Dot n dab adhesive and push the plug into wet goo.

When it is hard (about an hour) screw into the plug and it will be tighter than a tight thing, without the crushing problem 👍
Never heard that one before.

I need to attach a sliding door track to a plaster board wall which I can then hang a door off. Do you reckon that method is strong enough for a door to slide up and down it?

Depends mostly on the door, is it made from compressed cardboard and fresh air - or solid Oak?

I have dozens of them, because I live next to a tight arse chippy who decided he'd got to the point where he had enough to last him until retirement.







…….he still collects them though.

Of course, and it isn’t really about being tight because we gladly give them away - it is a ‘waste not’ mentality that will die out with our generation.

I know youngsters that won’t even wash a shirt - just bin it and buy another.

Exactly.

It pisses me off that in spite of pathetic attempts to save the planet by banning plastic drinking straws etc, youngsters just get through natural resources at an alarming rate.
Holiday flights and the pollution that goes with it is frightening - most Stag and Hen dos now are in Chech republic or Greek islands, and my kids all go on a couple every year!

Sorry, been a pita getting the photo hosted. It still won't seem to work on here, so only got a link...

(excuse the lack of correct jargon)...
This is the space. The area above the door opening is plasterboard / stud wall.

I have done the usual tapping to see if there is any meat behind the plaster board to screw the fixings directly into but there is not any. Any timber is too low down (right about the door opening).
