During that time it was always at the back of my mind to work out a way of doing it. I'm hoping this is a solution of sorts
The bath panel has been cut from moisture resistant plasterboard, which unlike hardboard won't expand/contract under temperature.

It has been cut into three divisions which mirror the existing grout lines on the wall. This makes removal much lighter and less cumbersome.
|Three by Three|
The panel is attached to the bath cradle with the use of magnets. These are heavy duty cabinet catches with a 6kg pull. I've used three of them to hold each panel.

Strong nylon line acts as a safety line should the magnets fail. This prevents the panels from smashing on the floor should they ever fall out.
After tiling each section should be able to be removed by scraping away the grout and pulled with a suction cup lifter.
The boxed pipe section are also secured to the wall with magnets and can be removed in sections.
Everything now is ready to be tiled!
