ABS for the bath
The ABS panels on the side of my Minuet's shower have split and I am thinking of replacing them as repair doesn't seem to be much of an option. The split is parallel to the floor and completely through the panel making it two separate pieces. Two questions:
1) Does anyone know the thickness of the panels used? I can buy .06", .093", and .125" thickness in 48" X 96" panels. I think the .125 is too thick (1/8th inch), but can't decide on the other two.
2) Has anyone done this replacement? If so, how big a job is it? Looking at the bath it looks like drilling out rivets, taking the shower stall apart, using the old piece as a template to cut the new piece, then reassembling with many rivets, aluminum trim, nose insert, etc. Is there something I am not seeing that makes it more difficult?
As an aside, has anyone come up with a way to repair (glue, weld, etc) these panels? They don't have much rigidity once cracked.
