OK,
lets assume poor craftsmanship.
We have enough labor, Marks' Home Depot credit and another memeber's exisiting materials.

Why dont we do a work day and fix all of the up tile in the bathroom.
Good for us, Ridesmart, and MSR?

Instead of making up for an incident that someone caused, we put a great deed into the bank at MSR.

I will volunteer my labor. Not a tile or drywall expert but I am sure that we could get this done over 1-2 days.

Because the shower does not need to be fixed....needs to be replaced. As soon as you start hammering on the wall all the tiles above are going to be falling in your head.

Got an email from Dave at Ride Smart today...

" I just spoke to the track manager and they are aware of that the backing was very weak and damage was the result of normal use.
I am very happy to hear that the community wants to help Ride Smart and MSRH!
The manager said that they would take care of it but I mentioned that the motorcycle community - along with Ride Smart - want to give back to the track by fixing the shower stall. I will be glad to compensate someone that has tile and sheet rock experience and could fix the wall."

who's up next????

Don't know when I can spare the time but I can do sheet rock and use to have my own tile company. No more tile tools though.

Leaving work this Thursday at 12pm, for an Ortho appointment. I'll be free the remainder of the evening. If not, the weekend is good for me too.

Sounds like Keith, luckyxdevil1, can do the work.

Mark and others have supplies

My father n law has the tools for tile work including a wet saw I believe.
I can bring the tools and lend a hand.
