It can be cut to remove it. How about putting it back together. You still need room to work if using the same mat's. I just have this thing about sparks inside walls and something maybe smoldering unbeknownst to me.

I guess I was just reverse engineering the installation.

Got a variable speed jigsaw? Maybe try a couple of metal cutting blades, if you want to cut it out without throwing sparks.

thanks everyone for all of your post to date. i've let the project gather some dust. luckily, we have a second bathroom.

in reviewing all of the posts so far, it sounds like everyone agrees that I need to get the the nipple on the inside of shower/tub off with a pipe wrench. so, that's my next move.

the problem is that this section of pipe is pretty well plastered in. so, now im wondering what tool i should use to start separating the plaster from the pipe, so turning it isnt a problem. here's a couple of pics to show the plaster from front, and again from the back.

thanks again everyone.
