Sounds like you want the easy way out! Not this time..Best thing to do is remove all wall material down to the studs. Then install water resistant drywall. You could install cement board but, it is not water proof. Your better off to save it for a tile job. Then install your tub kit. Spend the extra dollars on a quality tub kit. The finish caulking job is the ticket. Making sure surfaces are clean and then caulk with a good bathroom silicone. These kits don't solve every problem. If your bathroom is subject to a lot of use, think about a quality tile job. Good Luck, Mike
