    The panel on our P shaped bath has yellowed with age. I’m looking for some inspiration for a refurb. I’m guessing a replacement panel might be awkward in getting the right profile to fit the P.
    There’s a company on the net that sells a kit in the form of what looks like vertical lats that maybe interlock so you build it one end to the other. This appeals but the kit is about £250 which is just far too expensive. I wondered whether there is something in a UPVC profile board that would achieve the same result.

    if anyone has any ideas I’m interested

    Have you tried something like T-cut to remove the yellowing & then a good wax polish to restore the shine.

    My previous post.

    Just sorted one for my nephew, used soffit pvc, its twin walled so ripped the rear every panel to reduce it to single thickness which bends easily.
    Lay ply or board over top edge to mark shape of curve , cut this out and fix to floor inline to hold the base of panel and finish with pvc trim to form a skirting. water proof and easily cleaned.
    White silicon to seal all gaps.Best of all just £10 for plastic.

    The way it’s bowing on bend suggests you didn’t rip the rear of the panel to thin it?

    No it’s fine, it’s perfectly true, I think it’s probably the reflection that makes it look a bit bowed.

    Looks great! What trim did you use and what size soffit?

    I've got a bath that's 560mm in height - looking for tips to do the same

    The panels are 300mm wide x 5m long and cut to the desired height. So the panels are vertical with joints every 300mm in the pic above not one long panel.
