I had to warm up the pipe dope on mine a few weeks ago to get it to turn. Broke one of the inserts prior to applying heat, it did come out. I found a replacement at Home Depot.

Bathtub Removal

Well, was I surprised to find this old thread pulled off the shelf!!

I actually made a tool to unscrew the the tub drain from a P-trap. I used a pipe about 1-1/4" diameter and cut four 1/4" notches (12, 3. 6, & 9 o-clock positions) that would fit into the drain strainer (nut) and was able to break it free.

It was kind of a pain to put it back and I still don't have it tight enough, just haven't gotten around doing it. (There's a slip joint at the P-trap that's pretty hard to get a good grip on.)

(Don't worry though, removal is always the easy part!)

The "Tough As Tile" is still holding up, although there a couple of spots I wish I'd sprayed thicker. It cleans easily and looks so much better than the old yellow finish. The hardest part was disassembly and prep.

bathroom before and after pictures

This is very encouraging! I can't tell from the pictures, but did you paint the overhead cabinet too? Also, it looks like you painted the tambour. Did you have any problem with that?

It still looked good when I sold the Overlander in 2005 (or 06)

I honestly don't remember it much anymore.

But I painted the tambour doors in the Sovereign center bath and they seem to be holding up pretty well.
