It came out fairly well, although the pricing far exceeded what I was expecting - and the shop wants too much to make multiple copies. So - I am thinking about finding a fiberglass fab shop to do them that way, depending on demand.

What about making the black side and rear panels?

Making a mold would be a ton of work. I'll just add some glue on my cracked side panel. ;)

I plan to do the cassette toilet swap soon. Although nicer to use a custom pan, since the drain is in the original spot, why not save the trouble and mount the cassette toilet over the original pan on the strong but elevated toilet mount? Then just fill the gaps on either side of the mount with something to prevent water from going under either side of the cassette toilet base. Unless someone has a good reason not to, this is the route I plan to take to save a great deal of hassle.

I think one or more Westy owners have done this--made a platform.

Positive aspects include (a) no modification of shower pan so less work and time, and (b) added height for tall people.

Negative aspects include (a) added height, (b) original oval toilet base extends out and is visible (cassette toilet base is shallower than Bravura shower pan base), and (c) side gaps (as already pointed out).

This puts the toilet higher that most would want, and there is that fugly lump still sticking out. It's going to be a tall filler, the Thetford filler is already about 5". Removing the shower pan was incredibly easy and then using my Bosch multitool, cleaning off the old glue mess took less than a half hour. I'll look into having FG ones molded using my mold if I get five people interested, I suspect that can be done for less than 200 each. The plastic shop said he could do ten in ABS fopr about the same price but that the mold degrades each time one is done as it has to be heated up for the plastic to mold properly.

WestyVentures:

Would stainless steel be an option? Price?
