I am remodeling my bathroom and want to change it to tile shower.
I am OK with the shower base here and I don't like the shower enclosure / doors:
Is it possible to just remove the door and the enclosure at the wall BUT keep the base? I plan to do tiling behind at the wall and put a frameless glass door.
Or I may getting myself into more complex scenario with leak, new door not fitting properly or worst things look uglier...?
Basically I want to do tiling like this and keep the base (picture from Internet):
But I am not sure if my shower has the base and the wall plastic liner enclosure thing coming together as one piece, meaning it's not possible to separate them.
Any idea how such shower kit is designed?
OK, I committed a crime. I accidentally damage the base:
I really wanted to save the base as it does have enough lip space:
Is it possible to patch the hole with some fiberglass and sand to make it smooth? Since the glass door will be on top of it later.
I am working hard to save this shower base (look like a $200 cost if I have to replace). After removing the shower walls, I found out the walls mounted to the base via screw (in the back of the wall). So there are about 4 screw holes of 1/4" diameter:
Here is one small one that is hard to see:
How do I easily plug these holes from the shower base? Is there some plastic plug and I just caulk around it?
The holes are quite far from the wall so my wall tiling won't reach it to overlap the holes.
