Shower cubicle mastic ...

Tough crowd :D

After second removal of all mastic (clear at screen end, white at wall end). No more nails means that :o

Plastic tool and nails to get it all out, yikes.

Kitchen roll was used John to attempt to remove the worst of the previous disaster :lol:

Ok, so tool ordered, spray tip noted and appreciated. One evening next week to do the second attempt of applying it, this time
Probably too thin so it does not cover it :lol:

I have used this sealing strip from Wilko around the edge of the bath and so far (3 months or so) its been very successful.
You end up a with a 19mm x 19mm seal, its self adhesive and looks very neat, also cheap.
This is the link http://www.wilko.com/fillers+sealants/w ... vt/0288922
Def recommend, just take your time, use masking tape to mark where the horizontal bit goes, leave the adhesive cover on the vertical bit and its good. Saves the dilemma of getting a perfect mastic seal.

With fugi kit bought the mastic is now in place. Used the 3 mm side, pretty happy with that tool and the tips of all of you guys about the soapy water worked a treat as well :thumbsup:

Siliconing around after DIY jobs is something I hate, I always seem to get it all over my hands & clothes & then there's the stink as it's curing, usually the end result looks ok though.

I suspect as someone else said, I apply too much...

I was prepared this time. Wearing gloves, applied very little (started to worry me in places) and the soap spray worked miracles in cleaning the tiles.

As long as the water does not disappear between the tiles and the mastic I am happy :D

All the trays etc i silicone I just use my middle finger. It’s a good idea to lick your finger first to stop the silicone sticking. As mentioned you only need to cut a tiny bit off of the tube and cut it at a 45 degree angle.

I did have a fugi kit but seem to get a neater job with my middle finger, no tape and no soap.

I think it’s just practice. I used to be shocking at it but have done loads as I’m a plumber. Worst case it can always be picked off.
