My tub is 36"x72" so I had limited choices. This surround came with no instructions and 1 tube of color match calk. I went online and called for instructions but no ss ww6000 only generic flat panel instructions. Here's my simple version, dry set corners then sides see top Mark on back, Mark corner panels to cut long leg. Cut corner panels making sure valve will be on flat of side pane if on walll. Glue wall 1 1/4" dots 8" apart clear 100% silicone remove tape over adhesive strips apply corners ends then center back. It's worth reading online instructions for cutting cleaning and layout exc. Online rep. said they are working on instructions hopefully yours will have them. Oh yea strong smell, leave in vented room opened to vent and acclimate. Buy 8 tubes 100% silicone, and fine tooth saw blade.

We just got our Swan surround and were going through the pieces and instructions. YES the items smell, but they are made of chemicals (epoxy, resin etc.) so we are airing ours out for a few days in the sun that should help.
The problem we've run into is that while the manual says that they shipped three tubes of "sealant" (glue?) and one of caulk, what we got was four tubes of silicone sealant and no caulk.
So I called the Swan corp who told me that there should be EIGHT tubes of Silicone Sealant (this apparently is the GLUE that sticks the 5 shower surround pieces to the wall) and TWO tubes of caulk. So apparently HD is not shipping enough to do the job.
I DID call the customer service line and a very helpful woman said she was creating a report so that the HD folks can fix this error,
but in the mean time- just be careful that you use EIGHT tubes of sealant/glue and TWO of caulk to do the job well.
I'll report back when we get it installed. But so far I love that there are not a bunch of bump-outs and shelves. This is simple, clean, glossy, nice. There were also very few choices for a 72" wide surround, so I'm glad that Swan makes one!

This tub wall smelled so awful through the box, even after sitting in our house for a week, that I refused to put it up in my bathroom. It was a nasty chemical kind of smell. I returned the item to my local store.
