Has anyone used rustoleum stainless steel in thier shower renos?

So we have been diligently working away at our '81 excella II and it's time to refresh the shower. I had wanted to get some thin stainless steel sheeting and line the shower with that. I was surfing the rustoleum website for ideas when I came across there stainless steel paint. I believe it is intended for refinishing tables and appliances but thought it would be a good solution to my shower Reno. Has anyone ever used this product and if so would it work? Thanks for your time.

Paint is not going to be nearly as durable as stainless steel. Especailly if you are going over an old surface that has risidue from normal bathroom soaps/cleaners/hard water.

We put stainless steel sheets in our bathroom and are very pleased with the results.

It was 24ga on the walls and I think 18 or 20ga (sorry, I don't remember) for the floor pan. It was welded, so it had to be heavier gauge...

Some very nice work you did with stainless steel.

I am thinking about covering the kitchen wall between the counter top and wall cabinets with stainless steel. Can you tell me where you got the 24 gauge material?

Thanks, Dan
