OK right obviously it will be attached to wall before band goes on...overthinking it. Maybe I should take break from this project for a day or two to clear my head.

Thanks JadNashua, I'll buy one of those film gauges...

I've seen videos where people either use a trowel, brush or roller apply the redgard...which do you think would be best for someone doing this the first time?

Any of them will work fine, the key is to apply it to the proper thickness. I've always used a heavy nap roller.

And you don't want to roll over the same place repeatedly while it's wet. You'll just be lifting the Redgard from the wall, and reducing the thickness.

Using the wet film thickness gauge will tell you if your technique is working.

Would also be a good idea to whip the wall board down with a damp sponge to remove any accumulated dust.

Just like magic, and "poof" there's another one!

Go back and look at all of mine throughout the past few years, you don't hold a candle to my record.

My favorite was when I was trying to suggest the "divot" method for this guy's shower drain, but my phone suggested the "divorce" method.

Actually, either one will work, it's just that one is a lot more costly.

A few years ago my daughter and I were texting back and forth and I wanted to thank her so I hit the microphone button on my phone and said "Gracias". I looked down at my phone and had sent her "grassy ass". She got a big laugh out of it.

My cardboard shims (to use on the studs) arrived...are staples the only acceptable way to attach these to studs? The budget manual staplers in the $20 range have so so reviews and I would prefer not buy pneumatic tool or something expensive for this small job, as I don't know if I'll be using the stapler much in the future after this is completed...

Could nails or screws be used for this instead, and if so what kind? Thanks.

Or would this slap hammer be a good tool for this job:
