Bathtub Installation Problem

1152 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  jwilkey
I am trying to install a new bath tub. ( metal with enamel ) and it just doesn't want to fit in. The opening is maybe an 1/8-1/4" too small.

If I slightly bent the flange to get it in, will it be a problem? I don't think it should but I don't want to crack the enamel. ( but it is made to have nails/screws put through it, the flange that is)

It will pop the finish off or crack.
Got a picture?
A few wacks on the bottom plate or the studs should move them back enough to get it in.
