Nothing to do with walls.

There was a thread about this word that you (Lou and Musta) have both commented on in the last week or so.

ok, I'm guessing 'Fundador' is the answer then. Although apart from 'door' I cant work out the clue

edit: oh christ - fund a door. Really :?: :evil: :evil: :x

I thought it would be an easy one. Pay for = fund, entrance = a door, take away an o (nothing missing) fund a dor. Perhaps my mind is just evil!

Beco for the next one?

Almost there. Three words (look at the whole clue)...

Your fundador clue was perfect, it just felt like a needle in a haystack trying to get there. We really could do with an actual crossword to make it a bit easier, I might see if there's any free software online to make one
