A day of tedious work but very productive. I spent the day setting tiles along the back wall of the tub.
I am half done setting tiles. Not sure if I will finish it this weekend or not. I bought enough product to finish but it is looking like I will only need a small fraction of the second bag of thin set. I don't want to waste it. So I will return the large bag and get a smaller one in its place.
Once they are all set, the need to cure before I grout. At the earliest, it will be two weeks before the shower is useable.
