Tiling over plastic shower walls

I used this site extensively three years ago when I did all the tile work when we did a major renovation project on our home. We bought all the tile for all the jobs at that time. The last project was the master bath in which I was using John's plan for a large shower with bench seat - I ran out of time and energy and the wife wanted a operable shower. I did not want to put in a ceramic shower base so I put in a 33 x 581/2 swanstone veritek shower basin. I put on the walls those plastic sheets used in showers as a temporary measure.
I am now ready to complete the project. My first question - can I use the plastic sheets as a base for my wall tiles or do I have to remove it and replace it with Kerdi which was my original plan? It is not that big of deal to replace it but if I could save the time and money I would like to do so.
My second question - has anybody put John's shower seat in using a shower basin? I have some questions of how to handle butting up against the edges.

I'd take down the plastic.

I've never built a seat on a Swanstone basin, not sure how it would seal it.
