May be I miss it or not but according to our understanding most of the tubs, sinks and other fixtures are abs plastic.
What are yours made of?

I emailed Airstream and they replied that the showers are fiberglass. Their supplier is Ultra/Glas of Lakeville Inc.

Hi Bob,

I looked at the Marine Tex site. It doesn't look like they have any products that would do a color match, and the wife says I have to try and match the color .

Doing an internet search, I found an address and phone number for Ultra Glass of Lakeview IN. No email . I'm going to give them a call on Monday.

Randy

Smile Making Progress

I called Ultra Glass of Lakeview IN today at (574) 784-8958. A very friendly, helpful person on the other end confirmed that they are the shower stall supplier for Airstream. We discussed my floor crack and they have a repair kit for it, $16.00 including shipping. We confirmed the year of manufacture and the color, and after taking my address and credit card information over the phone said it should be in today's UPS pickup.

Stay tuned for the repair discussion.

Randy

Repair kit has arrived. Pretty simple: a jar of almond color gelcoat, a small bottle of hardener, and an instruction sheet. I'll be getting to work on this in a week or so. I will post pictures too.

two part paints

I am looking for a refinish product for my fiberglass shower and abs sink also. I want to do a total recoat and checked home depot and lowes this morning and was told they do not carry any two part paints. My local ace hardware also does not carry any. I did find some at the local marine store and was nearly overcome with sticker shock when I found that one quart was $85. The guy at lowes tried to sell me porch paint.

You can find it in the tub and plumbing area, it's not in paint section .

We were looking at the same kits yesterday. We also asked the person in charge of the paint dep at HD about the difference between the epoxy in the tub refinishing kit and the others in spray paint also epoxy and we didn't get an answer.
Wondering if you got any experience with the product. Any pics of the finished product?

I read somewhere that cheap refinishing of tubs doesn't last very long. However, that was for porcelain finishes. I don't know how it works on plastics, but for the price if it lasts a few years, I suppose you are ahead of the game.
