Installing a corner shower box

How to install a corner shower box? I bought a noname "Made in China" corner shower box with glass doors. The price was good and I liked the design. The only problem was the assembling manual. It was written in lacaonic language: "Step #1: Assemble tray. Step #2: Assemble walls"... So I had to work through the process of the corner shower assembling and installation myself. It took some time and I made couple mistakes.

Here is my illustrated corner shower box assembling and installation manual.
