I've always used glue not tape....
if using glue not tape, don't bother to clean old glue off rim, spreading new glue on will "reactivate" it.
24hrs before fitting tubs "dry fit" them onto the rim and leave them to stretch...
fit them next day will be a lot easier especially if using glue.
use the backing tape on the tub to help you line up the tubs straight with the rim
tubs are a bugger to fix....normal thread is not sufficient.....need something super strong
