Good info folks- this stuff is easy although messy to repair, but can be done.
Now this is what the Forum thing is all about.

Shower in my argosy

I have several cracks in my shower and would like to know what to do about it. Is it made from fibreglass or from plastic? I saw a beautiful blue and white shower while crusing around. When I get my camera, I will post some pics of my situation. I love the comments here. I live in Tulsa, OK and would like to have some recommendations for AS service in this area.
thanks y'all

1976 Airstream shower pans are plastic and were vacuum formed.

Because of that process, there was a tendancy to have thin material in the corners.

The shower pan can be removed and sometimes be repaired without much trouble. However, building up the thickness of the plastic material in the corners can be a long term tedious job.

Depending on how it's done, fiberglass patches can be installed from the back side of the shower pan, but not very easily if the plastic corners have become brittle.

Then the remaining problem is how to smooth out the good side of the pan and make it look ok. Next problem is how to refinish the pan. It's usually done with automotive paints, that must be sprayed on, several times.

The same process is true for a plastic tub or the plastic counter tops in the bathrooms.

There is a fiberglass replacement for the shower pans used in the 70's.

Do you need a shower tub?
I have a shower tub, in excellent shape, you can have for the cost of shipping.
The pan is totally FREE to you.
I am all about inexpensive and FREE!
No sense in repairing yours or buying a new one, when you can have good one for FREE!
Let me know if you want it. I know it fits your Argosy!

My praises go out to pattersontoo.
This place needs more members like him.
I know that the shower tub is the same that is in mine.

I have the hairline cracks all over my blue tub. They are very fine and almost make it look like old china. What is the product that fills those in. I have read folks saying bondo... surely bondo won't fill all those fine cracks in. Primer for the plastic paint will not fill it in either, that will just telegraph through.
