Bathroom Mirror

Postby thompson9100 » Thu Feb 11, 2010 2:02 pm

Hi folks

I have a bathroom mirror with internal lighting. Above this (as it was put in when the property was built) is a shaver light and socket. There is not adequate cable on the above light to move down the wall to connect to the mirror.

Can I resolve this myself (I'm guessing not as it's in the bathroom) and if so what is the best way? The cable needs extending downwards about 18 inches behind the plasterboard.
