Removal of fiberglass surround tub


I am a new DIYer (not by choice but by economics)..
I bought a 2005 foreclosure about 2 yrs ago. I have a dingy yellow fiberglass surround tub & shower in the master bathroom on the 2nd floor. I would like a walk-in shower only...I have a called a few places and got estimates which is way over my budget...Thinking of removing the surround myself (4 pieces) an d having a plumber come and install the shower floor as well as new fixtures (only because of being on 2nd floor) and I will do the tile myself. Do you think this is reasonable?

Thanks

Removal of fiberglass surround tub


Sure---the demo is simple enough---remove enough drywall to expose the nailing flange--pull the nails --

Lots off good tile help here---
