Finishing Up
With the panels in place, you're ready to install the decorative trim pieces that come with the kit. Measure the back wall and cut a length of molding 1/8 in. less; that allows the trim to expand without buckling. Apply silicone to the back of the molding and press it to the wall (photo 8). Hold it in place with several strips of masking tape. Repeat for the end walls. Next, cut and install the vertical corner trim in a similar manner. Again, hold it in place with masking tape. The ceramic tile on some tub surrounds will extend beyond the end panels by an inch or so. To conceal that last bit of tile, form corner trim from two flat pieces of molding joined at a 90-degree angle, and glue them to the tile with silicone (photo 9). Allow the silicone to dry for 24 hours before removing the tape and using your newly finished tub.
