Customer wants to replace old tub, acrylic tub and surround from the '70s. Alcove measures 58 1/2" end to end (drywall to drywall above surround) and 30 3/16" deep, tub is 60"(?) x 28". They want a 60"x30" new tub installed. My question is were tubs of this era a little shorter than the tubs of today. I can make the alcove a little deeper without a lot of problems but not looking forward to making it 1/2" wider to accommodate a new tub. Thanks for any info

Bathtub rough in lengths have been standardized for a looong time so unless this was a custom house with a custom built bathtub you should be fine. I've replaced tubs in houses built from the 40's on up and have never run into an opening that was less than 60".
