Bruce, what did you use again?

I have very little space between the skylight and the cabinet on the one side. This pic is not mine but identical to mine...

I used a big cardboard box ... or some small ones taped together. If you oops when cutting the template just remark and tape a few more pieces together ... doesn't need to be exact ... you can make small changes to the aluminum after bending. Put the bend in the middle so you can trim both ends for an exact fit. CUT THE ENDS A LITTLE AT A TIME AND TRY IT IN PLACE AFTER EACH CUT. TOO LONG IS OK ... TOO SHORT NOT SO GOOD . I cut mine with a Dremel and abrasive wheel but a hacksaw is ok.

Well, got the ceiling track installed, perfectly. Just went and picked up a shower curtain and a liner yesterday.

All is well except the shower surround is a darker brownish gold color, and the shower curtain is nice fresh and newer colors, it makes the shower surround look ugly.

Wish there was some way to paint the shower white. But that's not gonna happen, so I'll have to live with it. Besides, nobody sees the shower anyway with the curtain there....

I'll be taking pictures of the finished product this weekend. I didn't realize I had to put screws in the little plastic flippy things to hold the shower curtain up until I went out and held it up to see how it looked/fit.

The shower liner fits perfectly inside the shower pan edges, about a 2" overlay, perfect!

Can't wait to try it out!!

Thanks again Bruce! Pictures pending.............

Here's the pictures!

The microfiber shower curtain liner (inside) is a little long. Have to have it hemmed up, but the end result I am very pleased with....



Thanks all!

Looks awesome !!

Before hemming, run it thru the washer and dryer ... sometimes they shrink and it might be perfect.

BTW, I hang my broom on the short flat wall next to your 2 towel hooks ... outa' sight but handy.

Thanks Bruce! I'm very happy! But I didn't want to take the liner (its microfiber liner) back off to have it hemmed after I got all the screws in.

But I guess I'm gonna have to, to make it look purrrty....

Yeah .... I hear ya'. ... The good news is it's sturdy.

The other trick I use is a spring clothes-pin on the track, with the curtain pushed all the way to the side, so the curtain doesn't roll back and forth when driving.
