so finished the drywall......... Have to now install the acrylic tub surround- The surround is 60" wide- my opening is about 59" - I am hoping it's not exactly 60 wide- If I need to trim the surround- what is the best way? put circular saw blade on reverse??? The manufacturers site says it can be cut (has to have holes cut anyway for plumbing)- thoughts??

If you have an oscillating multi tool---that will work--the 'half moon' blade is dandy if you have one.

A fine blade in a circular saw might be safe--might--I've done that--but it's a big risk.

Jig saw would do the job with a fine blade.

#1, I'd never install a glued up enclosure, way to thin and looks cheap.
A nail on one is at least three times as thick.
A plywood blade on a cirular saw put on backwards will cut it without shattering it.
