No. Do some minor floating with thinset and let it set up. Do this before tiling. Buttering up mosaics will cause you a lot of grief.

Spread thinset in the low areas and drag some sort of straight...

So you're saying you've checked Toyota's option list looking for cow horns? I didn't see it either. :D

The 254 Platinum thinset will work fine.

I see no reason to skip taping the Durock joints. I'd do it, won't hurt anything and might help.

I wouldn't want any type of wood on my shower wall. By adding the wood, you're trying to prevent cracking but if it decides to swell, you will cause cracking.

Have you ever seen someone hang a...

I've never installed a foam curb but I see no reason why you can mud over it with a thin layer of thinset and then fat mud over that. The thinset would be used as a bonder for the mud to stick to the...

What Justin said. Why cut a separate piece for the curb when you don't have to.

It really depends on how much "slight deflection" is. Did you staple tar paper (or poly) and lath to the plywood before placing the preslope? Not sure if that is part of the problem or not. Lots of...

I'd leave it as is. It's behind the plate, moisture shouldn't ever get back there. I'm trying to figure out what type sealer you're asking about. :scratch:

I don't doubt what you're saying but to get the right thickness, you have to lay it on thick. Like Cx has said, it's not like painting your bedroom walls. At this point, we can hope it's enough.

I noticed the same thing as Bubba. The Redgard is supposed to be about credit card thickness. It takes a couple pretty thick coats to achieve that.

Like James mentioned, I'd use a grinder with a vacuum hose next to it. You should be able to cut thru the tile without going too deep.

I would stop the preslope mud back about 6-8 inches from the drain and use thinset from that point to nothing at the drain. Avoid the little step at the drain.

If your mud at the drain wants to crumble the next day, remove it from that area where it's too thin and use straight thinset. Thinset is good from 0 to about 1/4 inch thick.
