    Anyone fairly decent with electrics? I’m after fitting some downlights in the kitchen can’t get usual sparky out for 2 months despite me tilling his kitchen for him over Xmas holidays the lazy w**k*r lol
    So iv decided to do the job myself how hard can it be? The problem is I’m clueless when it comes to buying the fittings what’s all this ip65 gu10 and all the gay codes?
    Also if anyone’s ever done it before is there anything in particular I need to be careful of or any general tips
    That is other than don’t get electrocuted and don’t burn the house down
    Cheers

    Just need fire Rated in the kitchen mate
    Piggy back off your first light
    But what u got up at mo is it a pendant? If so your have to put wires in a junction box first and then bring a wire out to your first light and then so on
    Lighting can be a txxt with switch wires etc so don’t get them mixed up

    Yeah got a pendant now so wire into a junction box the same as it’s into the pendant then out the other side and round all the spot lights, you just finish at the last 1 don’t you? No need to bring it back into the box?

    Any electrical work can be a fire hazard if not wired up correctly...

    Its a nowt job. Sparkys have it easy just coz they need to 'pass things off'.
    I rewired all our house. Piece of piss.
    Just got a spark to fit mains supply to board and do a quick test.
    They think they're trade royalty
