new finish for sink

I have the tub/sink combo pulled out of my 66 Overlander. It has no cracks or chips, but it looks so yellow and scrached up. Is there a gel coat of some sort I can spray on? I used a two part epoxy to refinish a sink in my home, but I am afraid it would be too brittle for the thin walled sink and tub. Any ideas? TomE

I have contracted out refinishing of our Airstream plastic and fiberglass parts to a company that specializes in this.
You can find them by bathtub refinishing in the yellow pages.
Their materials are three part epoxy paints, which are incredibly durable. Their surface preparation takes much longer than the painting process, btw.
Your two part epoxy might also work well, again, with the proper prep work.

Here's what the TV show "Classic Rides" did:

Like Balgrn, we used POR WHITECOAT for the whole space, not just the shower pan but also the walls and ceiling too.

Volatile fumes to work with but the finish is excellent, like porcelain.

I like it very much.
