using a roller.
So far it looks as if the leaks have stopped.
I opened up the fake cabinet doors on the back side of the shower and had a fan blowing on the damp walls and floor for over 24 hours.
Well the 2" squares didn't hold due to the flexing of the shower wall and the rivets.
So 1st put caulk around the rivets, put 2" squares over the rivets and then 4" squares over the 2" squares.
Hopefully that will work...?
Behind the bathroom, you can see how the shower wall has pulled the 1/8" plywood wall held only with small stables off the studs.
There is water stains, but hopefully no water damage.
