Thumbs up Refinishing tubs and sinks.

Searched for info and found that many have refinished their tubs and sinks. How has it stood up? Will it stand up in about 105 degrees? What is the best product? Tom

I just painted the entire interior except my bath. I am in the process of developing a system that will withstand the bath environment.

Tubs, shower pans, plastic bath counter tops can be refinished basically in two different ways.

The first is to use "epoxy" paints.

The second is to use "automotive paint"

Both stand up to weather very well, therefore they stand up equally well within trailers or motorhomes.

We use both equally well.

Obviously, correct surface preparation is a "must", prior to painting.

Preparation is the Key

Ditto what Andy said.

Having done it twice now ('72 Overlander, '73 Sovereign), I've been really pleased with the results.

While the instructions say you can use a brush, I prefer spraying, although cleanup isn't much fun.

The difference between the old and new is night and day.

Less than $50 in materials (Tough As Tile 2-part epoxy, Bondo fiberglass repair kit, TSP, and lots of elbow grease).
