We did the same thing that was on the other side of this wall which you can see the back of and have had no issues. The water damage visible here is from the leak that snowballed this whole gig. LOL

And like I said, I'm an automotive designer using the help of my retired parents who were in the banking industry and satellite industry. We're not exactly pros here... I'm pretty confident we'll be fine, this is about the 10th one we've done this exact same way.

The shower in my home in Savannah was done wrong but you couldn't tell until it was already fubar. They didn't put the shower pan in correctly and didn't use a water barrier so the floor sank after a couple of years because of the water weight and rot. It was an 8000 dollar job because everything had to be removed including the floor. There was some structural water damage to the support beam under the house too. Moisture attracts termites and we had some. It was a real PITA.

Yike! Looks fun!!! LOL We did do a full water barrier in the pan of the shower in my master for sure but not on the walls. You can see it with the stripes running about 6" up the wall and wrapping over the dam.

Looks good. I doubt you will fill up the shower that far. Tubs are usually fine the stand ups are where contractors skimp out because they are in a hurry or they just suck.

You guys see the image jeep released for the concept vehicle they're displaying at EJS in Moab this year. Looks like an interesting mix of new and old! "THEY'VE GONE TO PLAID"

LOL, in the 2+ years I've been showering in it it for sure has never filled up that far! LOL We put a pretty decent slope on the floor pour not really knowing what industry "standard" is...

Maybe it's something simple you might be overlooking. Happens to me a lot especially after I have been messing with something for too long.

Check the exhaust black smoke means you are running rich. Blue is oil, white is water. I would lean it out and see what happens. You might need to re jet that thing as well.

have you hooked up a vacuum gauge yet to make sure that you are drawing enough vacuum. Does the carb have a built in choke, if so how is it operated. Manual/electric/automatic. If your choke is staying closed, it will limit the air, hitting the throttle with the choke on will make your A/F mixture very rich. How confident are you on your rebuild also?
