    right here right now, over there later on.
    just the regular stuff.
    I like templates, I kept pieces of sheet metal behind the seat of the truck
    with the lay out of tub hole centers for fiber glass tubs and showrrs
    you just set the sheet metal on the tub lip and mark the centers
    the shower had a 90 degree edge to hook on the side of the unit



    I used 18'' drill bit extensions so i would not have to carry a ladder around
    when drilling holes in the top plate for vents

    you can use your plyers to install roofing nails in a 2x4 to secure a drop eared 90
