Here is a picture of the current drain. The previous picture of where I was trying to dig it out.
I was able to break out the black stuff around the drain to open up the space. I need to lower it about 3 and 1/2 inches. As I was digging I didn't actually see a p-trap but there is standing water in the drain so it must be there...(hopefully. this is florida)

It has the slip connections.

Where are you seeing standing water, Kirk? You can somehow see past that elbow fitting?

If I was going to use a profile at the tub/wall junction I would use dilex-as.

CX, I can remove the elbow fitting. They used a Florida amount of glue to connect it...

Jim, do I need to use dilex-as if I overlay the kerdi band over the ledge?

Can't seem to source it here. Lowes says July 23rd at the soonest to receive.
Is it cosmetic issue only?

From a waterproofing standpoint, the Kerdiband will seal what's behind. But, the profile you showed would likely end up with water being held on the bottom...that's primarily an edge profile to cover up an edge rather than an expansion profile. IOW, they have different purposes.

Dilex-bwa might work. I'd call Schluter tomorrow and ask them what might work for you there for confirmation.

I've seen a few people recommend cutting out the kerdi board niches as you start tiling to match the grout lines.
I am putting three in a row on the side wall (long wall) of tub.

The first will be near the bottom as part of a 2 inch ledge. It will be four tiles tall. About 17 inches, then a second one after a single tile row that will be 3 tiles tall, or about 12 and 3/4.

1. Do I need to add in wood supports or will kerdi fix be strong enough to glue the kerdi board to studs and the interior drywall.

The tile inside will be a small 2 inch or penny tiles for the back wall with white tiles along the side walls and top and bottom with kerdi trim for the edges.

Pictures added to help explain.

Finally found the niche thread of was looking for. Decided to use my extra 2 inch kerdi board for the bottom of the second niche. Fits in tight and strong using kerdi fix.
Current progress.

Making good progress but I think I am going to run out of Kerabond before I finish. I am also tiling the area behind and beside the vanity and using Mapei UltraFlex 1.
It is polymer enhanced. Wondering if I only have a few rows at the top of the shower if I can safely use it to finish up rather than making a 40 minute drive to buy a 50 lb bag of the Kerabond T and only use 10 lb's of it...?

Bad idea? Good Idea?

I wouldn't hesitate to use the UF1 to finish up those top rows, Kirk.

Finishing up.
Simple question, I have a fairly white tile and will be using a brushed nickel hardware sliding glass door.

1. Would clear or white hide a little bit of lippage where the shower door sidebar connects to the wall tile. In other words, I thought it was going nice and flat but there is a bump in the middle that leaves a gap between the tile and the metal frame.
