ABS bath paint options

Have been researching this for awhile and not happy with the recommended rustoleum, interlux, krypton fusion, tile doc, appliance paints...
I want more color options and not to hire a refinisher!
It appears there is a new product out there and comes in endless color choices:

http://oem.sherwin-williams.com/us/e...crylic_enamel/

I'll research more Friday.

Another S&W rep told me that it was not appropriate. Not what I read... but anyway, he said he did research and said S&W did not have any appropriate paint finishes for a shower over abs/fiberglass. I find that hard to believe.
I read on the net that one kind of XIM is tintable! I will go that rabbit trail next.

Update: Evidently folks have used Tubby with good results on ABS plastic and fiberglass caps. Last time I looked they had 4 colors. They now have 48!
Tubby DIY - Bathtub Refinishing Kits, Enamel Repair Kits

Now, my question is about the nasty vinyl that is the rest of the walls. The vinyl and fiberglass cap but up against each other.
No straight answer on other threads. Interested in Caravel vinyl of the same years.

I should add that automotive paint is not cheap. It holds up to abuse a car goes through so it meant to last. You get what you pay for in this department!

The latest in a frustrating round of searching for colors! The Tubby site shows 48 colors but here is what they sent me;
<snip> Jerri L. Lawson,

A customer support staff member has replied to your support request, #341453 with the following response:

Hi Jerri
Yes, our Tubby DIY kit will work well for your application. Just make sure you remove all the caulking before applying our product. You can reapply once our product is cured. Fill in al those cracks with a flexible polyester lightweight body filler, allow to cure then smooth flat before applying our product.

We don't have any special colours yet other than white. You could use a universal tinter for epoxy/solvent based paints to change our white to a more off white for your purposes - speak to an automotive paint supplier.

Did you see the YouTube video where our product was used on an Airstream? See Airstream Restoration - 03-1 Bathroom - YouTube for the info.

You can buy our kit from the website Tubby America: DIY Bathtub Resurfacing Kits

Regards
Andre

OK, Here is the latest others have mentioned. This says plastics, fiberglass, and aluminum. AND tintable to deep colors with universal tint colors. What does that mean.
I think I will have to go to a store in Houston to find these products though.
