I used the white pebble grained fiberglass panels that Home Depot sells to cover the plywood bath partition in my Avion. I used contact cement to adhere the fiberglass to the plywood. I painted the rest of the shower with white enamel oil base paint. It looks like new now.

You're welcome. If there is anything I can do to help in the future. Let me know. I think you can contact me thru my private email and I could send more photos if you like. I'm not sure how that private stuff works here since I'm new to this site.

mikvw,
Have you completed your bath remodel? If so, what did you end up doing?

If not, I'll throw in what we did in our 1979 Sov, center bath. We used PVC panels from a box store (1/8 thick), cut them to cover the walls, used gorilla glue and screws to adhere the paneling to the walls. We then sealed the edges with silcone bathroom sealer. If you are using the paneling walls in the 79, you may not want to use screws and the glue should hold up fine. We used screws since we rebuilt the walls using pine frame and floating panels. We also reused the original shower pan. Below are some picts of the outcome:

Before the hall wall was in place:


After hall wall:


The sink side of the shower:

I have started reworking the bath, by tearing out the closet and the old vanity and sink. Built new cabinets and counter tops relocating the sink to the right hand side of the door. Rebuilt the box platform above the black water holding tank. Installed a small cabinet where the vanity was, it will house the converter. Installed a new toilet. I'm going to try to salvage the tub. If it doesn't work out, the shower stall looks like a good option. I have the cabinets built, but need to finish the plumbing prior to installing them. Any and all input is welcome. Will post pics .

Sorry to bump an old thread, but Bowmans -- your new wood framed bathroom is gorgeous!

Thanks for the compliment. As far as a bathroom door goes, we ended up not putting one in. We close the pocket door from kitchen side. Since it is just the 2 of us, we weren't concerned about the bedroom being open to the hall. I did consider putting a curtain across the doorway but not having a door hasn't been an issue.

Sorry...should have been more clear. Was curious about your shower door? This really looks great!

Oh, for the shower door, we put a regular shower curtain. I cut a shower rod down to fit the width, cut a plastic shower curtain in half and trimmed the height some. I think there are some photos in our blog if you want to check them out here.

Your modifications look great. I really like you TV cabinet. Does the TV raise internally, or are you able to fit it through the front doors to set on top?

The bath looks great. Do find that you prefer the curtain over the solid shower door?

Thanks. The TV is actually mounted to the wall on an arm I made. The cabinet top and doors open and the tv swings up. We do prefer the curtain over the door for the shower. Less things to break and less areas to seal.

How does the curtain do in terms of keeping water off the bathroom floor? Do you find there is much overspray since there isn't much room for overlap due to the shower opening being so close to the vertical part of the seat?

The shower pan in ours had about a 3 inch edge that comes out from the seat and the wall is a little farther. The other side only has a 1 inch overlap on it but we haven't had any water spray issues.
