retiling a shower stall


I'm retiling a small, 3x3 shower stall. All of the tiles and drywall have been removed. I'm left with studs and a shower pan. I'd like to keep the shower pan but am having difficulty removing the old grout/thinset/ adhesive. This brown stuff is stuck hard to the upper sides of the shower pan. Any suggestions on how to remove this stuff so I have a nice clean shower pan to retile on?

"Bathroom remodeling project is ready for the tiling phase of the shower stall and the bathroom flooring. The shower framing is done, and the plumbing has been roughed in. The first step in the tile phase is to prepare the floor and shower stall for ceramic tile application, and in the case of the stall, making sure it's as water proof as possible."
So.....
This comment (above) is supposed to be in response to the OP's original statement????? Is that correct?

This is one of those posters who type pleasantries. Vaguely touching on the subject, but not really adding to it.
Like:
Don't forget the towel bars!!
OR
A pretty rug will just make the space standout in a crowd

That is kind of what I was thinking. A sophomore with nothing to say determined to say something. Got it!

Well it's been four days, I see no reason to waste any more time here.
