    The other day I siliconed round my inspection hatch, and today I grouted the bath panel with epoxy grout. I'd forgotten what hard work it is.

      Does anyone know how to disassemble this shower cubicle? I can see no fasteners anywhere.

        They are behind the clip on trim strips JKO.

          Thanks Boletus. I tried to remove what I thought were trim strips yesterday, but they don't seem to move either.

            Bit hard to tell from those photos.

            Looks like black plastic caps on the uprights, if so they should prise out to access the top-rail fixings.

            The quarter-round moulding at the corner look like it should come off as well to reveal fixings, but may take quite a bit of force or judicious levering at the 'points'.

            Once you have the corner(s) undone/removed the doors should slide out, but may also have stops on the other end to undo before they will come out.

              Looking again, is that a manufacturers sticker at the top of the glass panel.

              Take a look online for that manufacturer/ enclosure model and you may well find the installation instructions.

                I also think the screws are under the black plastic caps. One of ours is similar - it's Lakes make.

                      Here's the cement board installed. I have not yet added the fibreglass tape that you need to cover the joints with.

                          I got the last bit of epoxy grouting done in the main bathroom today. This stuff goes off so fast. I had to throw away about £2 worth of grout, that would have done for the other bathroom if I was quick enough.

                              Thanks Interlaken. I dread to think.

                              I normally work on my flats about 9 hours a week. September was spent in Torquay, and recovering from it, though.

                                Agree, it looks very good, nice job mate.

                                But....

                                More importantly, how long wasn't it bleedin' earning for you? This thread started in March!
                                (I ruddy well hope you had major works council tax exemption.)

                                I've had 3 bathrooms done with trades this year alone. Managing, labouring and generally dogsbodying them myself. All finished and new tenants moved in within a month. Probably not to the perfection yours might be but still decent quality and good for at least another 10 years. Even thinking of doing another next month but a bit worried about cutting it fine for a Christmas void.

                                It might not seem it, but for every time I post disagreeing with you, there will have been five posts I find myself nodding along in agreement.

                                I just can't understand your reasoning on this. Please could you enlighten.
