Let the hate begin .....
To fix; 1 As long as I can't see it anymore
2 As long as the neighbour can't see it anymore
3 As long as the wife can't see it anymore
4 Like the mailman said to do it
5 Like the kid at HD said to do it
6 Like a bunch of guys on some website said to do it
7 I think this will work
8 Any or all the above as long as it passes inspection
