Cool Paint

Another update:
OK, I’m starting to sound like a commercial for POR products. I just Sprayed the closet wall, off white with a product called Marine Clean. Before I used this I kinda liked a product called ZEP and I had cleaned the wall with that. However the paint looked faded. The cloth I used was yellow when I finished. And the area was maybe 12 square feet. The good news is I will not have to re-paint the off white walls!



MARINE-CLEAN™ removes grease, oil, mildew, algae, musty odors, soap films, wax. Use it to clean canvas, vinyl, nylon, holding tanks, grease traps, auto parts and more.

How is the surface holdling up. As I understand it you did not use a primer.

I've had mine redone for about 6months now and still looks like new. I just got back from using my A/S in the Key's and the stuff is strong. It held up to two teenage girls walking on it and using the bathroom non-stop. Very happy with the stuff I used.
I'm not sure if I used the same stuff that BALRGN used, mine is just the two part epoxy you can get at HomeDepot. Easy, no primer, 1 coat. Most important part is making sure pieces are very clean.
I give it 3 thumbs up

Hi, just a quick note on tinting the epoxy for the bath. Read the label and it tells you that you can add up to 1 oz. of pigment for a color change, nothing drastic just to shade out the brillant white. I'm redoing mine in a mellow yellow to stay as original as possible.

Also wondering

I am really getting tired of the drab yellow in my bathroom as well as the front cap of our Airstream. I would like to paint these pieces as well, but was wondering if anyone had any luck doing this without taking anything apart. If so, please let me/us know. PM me if you would like and let me know how you did it and how it turned out.

I have some cracks in the shower where you sit.I was wondering if there anyway to repair this or should we just replace it.We don't use the bathroom at all but for storage so we never noticed it before now.After seeing your post about the whitecote We was going to try it on the bathroom sink since the sun had discolored it.then we found the two cracks in the shower sit.So i wanted to see what you'll had to say first.

Looking for a product to redo the sink in my AS. It is the original WHITE double bowl. We want to make it BLACK. OUr new countertops are going to be a blakc granite pattern laminate. The only product I've found readily available is Tough As Tiles, but it is only available in WHITE or tintable with a max of 1 ounce.

Either that or a good source for a small BLACK sink, doesn't have to be double bowl, could be single. If I can't refinish the existing, or find a BLACK one to fit, I'm stuck going with Stainless Steel, which I'd prefer not to do.

I had a crack in the seat of the shower as well, Por 15 (sounds like an edorsment) has a 2 part epoxy that looks like sticks of putty.
http://www.por15.com/PRODUCTS/PUTTYF...7/Default.aspx
It worked great, made a ball, that looked like silly putty and spread it out over the back side. Place a thin layer on the front side and smothed it out, let it dry, hand sanded it. You can not even see it was there now.

The only black sinks that I can think of right now are made by Kindred:

http://www.fhpkindred.com/home.asp

And Frank (look at the granite & fireclay models - shown as white but comes in matte or gloss black):

http://www.frankeksd.com/productcate...?cat=1&node=10

Both companies are related, so you'll see some crossover of models.

If you live in a good sized city, look in the yelwpages for kitchen and bath suppliers (not Home Depot or other big box store). These places will have show rooms that will display fixtures by manufacturers that you wont see at the big box stores. Look at some of the European lines as they tend to be available in colours other than white and bone. I'll have a look through someofmy other product literature and see if I can find anything else for you.

Cheers!

I was wondering. My 75 has a wooden frame under the seating part of the shower, does your? I have to admit, that shower is smaller then most phone booths. I doubt that Clark Kent could change into Superman in that thing.
