    How are you going to prepare the old gunite concrete bottom so the new stucco coat will bond?

    Concrete sticks to it so I shouldn't have to do anything. The gunite guy, if he shows up, said he'll grind out the areas.

    I put up the glass tile around the waterline over the weekend. Put the thin set right on the Rubberizeit and it stuck. Some that I dropped on the bottom was very hard to get up. The only things that it won't stick to or that won't stick to it is glass and oily substances.
