New Bambi Bathroom Stuff

Hey guys, airstream newbie here. I recently gutted the interior of a 63 bambi that had been sitting around for a long time. the shower basin was cracked significantly from a previous removal attempt by the previous owner, and was unsalvageable. where does one go about getting new shower basins like that? thanks!

Plastic parts are pretty hard to find for our older trailers. You might find used stuff but it will probably be cracked, too. If you want a new shower pan you will probably have to find something generic. I think the best way is just to fix your old pan if its fiberglass. Scuff it up, piece it together, glass it like a sandwich and paint it. Go to someplace like US Composites for materials and info. If its ABS or other plastic you probably won't be able to fix it but you can use it as a guide. Make a plywood copy and glass & paint it. Take the pieces to an HVAC shop and have them bend you up some stainless. Chances are when you get all done you will find exactlywhat you want but too late.
