I've decided to replace an old bath front panel made out of a single piece of mdf with pvc tongue and grove cladding. I've cut all to the pieces to the correct dimensions and now faced trying to get all panels slotted in together.

Problem I've faced with is trying to get all the panels pushed in together between the 2 walls of the bath tub. The slot under the bath tub is tight. I'm at a loss on how to get all pushed in together without braking any panels.

Any suggestions much appreciated.

See photos.

its usual to have a 2" x 2" frame for a bath panel like yours.


you can shave 10mm off the panels and they should then fit.
you can use something like Easi-Drive cups from SF to pin the bottom edge of the panels.
you could also fit a small white knob on the right hand panel to help easing it in or out.
its best to have vertical backing battens at either end.

i guess your bath has a trap but i cant see it?
wet test your supplies and waste under pressure before closing it all up.

I'd have a bit more framing in there as well.

As far as fitting goes, so long as you have some sort of trim akin to a piece of skirting going on later, you'll probably have to cut the last piece, (against a wall) a bit shorter in height and ease it up under the bath rim once it's back in the same plane as the other pieces.
