Modifying The Tub Phase 1


The original toilet was a standard guillotine type and since I planned on installing a marine toilet, I had to modify the tub.  I cut the toilet part of the fiberglass off as you can see in the second picture.

I’ve taken the tub out to do a small repair to the floor and decided, since it was coming out anyway and I am adding a grey tank under the floor in the trailer frame, I would be able to lower the tub down 2 inches giving this 6 footer some much needed headroom.

This is a repair supported by sticks that are double stick taped to the top side.  The bottom side will get a several layers of fiberglass.

Next I built a form and fiberglassed another modification.  When I pull the form off it will be easier to see what I’m doing. Hope it turns out OK.  This is my first foray into fiberglass work.
