Shower door install in unplumb fiberglass surround
 
Hi. I'm getting ready to install a new glass shower door in a fiberglass shower surround. The problem is the opening at the bottom and middle of the fibgerglass shower is 30" wide and at the top its 30 1/2" wide. Any advice on how to install the shower door given the fact that the top of she shower entrance is wider than the bottom? I know I can adjust the width of the shower door using the adjustable jambs but this still doesn't account for the problem. Thanks!

That's why the jambs are adjustable; to allow for out-of-plumb walls (among other things). But it sounds as though you're saying that the wall(s) of the surround are not only out of plumb, but curved.

In that case, either a whole lot of ugly silicone, or tear it out and redo it properly.
