I'm going to glue (and nail) cement tile underlay sheet to a painted plasterboard wall.

The paint seems to have decent adherence, should I do anything before gluing?

I'm thinking of doing something similar. Can you recommend which kind of adhesive to use? – teabot Mar 18 '13 at 13:53

I'd sand it lightly and wash it thoroughly afterwards to get any particles off, you'll get better and longer-lasting adherence.
