Hi everyone, I've made a bit more progress on the demolition and I'm almost ready to start the walls on the shower. I had a couple more questions that came up during the demo.

1) as you can see I cut the wall that was previously there to be the height of a pony wall now. obviously it's nowhere near as sturdy as it was before going all the way to the ceiling. I've read in a few places that I should brace the pony wall underneath the floor to make it sturdy enough for a half tile wall plus glass on top. Is that needed for this size wall or is there any chance I wouldn't have to open up the sub floor?.

2) attached is a picture of the 32-year-old drain from the original shower. The screws on top are entirely stripped, so I don't know if it's worth trying to remove it as is. Or just getting a view from below and cutting it. What would be best given the state of the drain?

Thanks!
