Default Nope

Just follow the directions for the tub surround and make sure there is no loose paint. It needs to be cleaned before you adhere the glue.

You will need plenty of ventilation...stinks really bad. Fumes are not good for you or kids, spend the night elswhere if possible.

Have a fun time, it's all downhill from here.
