Shower pan strengthening/repair necessary? (Bambi II)
I am working on gutting the Bambi II. This is in preparation for floor removal, frame repair, and floor replacement. I have toyed with not removing the fiberglass shower pan/black tank combination unit. I am just not sure how to go about it, but will look at it further as I get to that point.
I notice that the shower floor is a bit stress cracked right around the drain and makes that crackly fiberglass sound when one steps in there. I am wondering if my local fiberglass shop or auto body guys can strengthen/repair this, or if it even needs repaired. I am guessing it might leak, but have no idea at this point.
All of this is a ways off, but just looking for some advice on how to proceed. I guess also if things are too bad (I don't really think they are), a new tub/tank unit could be fabricated.
Ideas on this?
