Greatpumpkin, here is another manufacturer of solid surface sinks available in a variety of colours. I actually have one of these in my kitchen and it is standing up very well to everyday use.

POR 15 on Wall Board in Shower?

Guys,
I am a newbie to Airstreams (only had my 79 Sovereign for 3 weeks). I have stripped all my furniture out and I am now working on fixing some soft flooring. However, in the bathroom we have the "yellow" plastic sink and counter-top and we have the really ugly flowered wall board all over. My question is this...Could you use Por-15 or Rust-oleum's tub and tile on that wall board to change it's color? Would it stick? Thanks for helping and if this question has already been asked I'm sorry.

I hear Kryloin has a plastic paint that does the same thing..

Has any one use Krylon spray paint I just dont have the money or time to apply the paint you guys are using if I can get by this summer with a plastic spray paint I will and fully detail the bathrom over the winter. My bathroom is nasty the counter is all stained and looks like junk so I need to do something and I have a feeling Ill find more Mice nests under then counter topping. But like I said I want to get my family interested in trailering and it is allready june. So question is would the plastic Krylon spray paint do the job?

I have kept up with Balrgn's progress and have read others' comments about Krylon. Keep in mind this is just an opinion, but I feel that for the end cap that yellows the Krylon would be excellent.

But for the heavier use (and water) the sink / shower gets, The Whitecoat would be the better product. And I plan to do it in place with a brush and masking tape.

I plan to finally get to doing mine in the fall this year. I am also thinking / planning of useing the Marine Clean on the other bathroom parts and maybe the back endcap which is 'much' better than the front one cause of the darkness in the back I'm sure. Krylon will get everywhere! Lots of Mask.

For the crack in the front endcap, I'm thinking Plastic Weld but know the gap is not enough to get a backing piece behind it. What have others done with foot long cracks. I know about drilling a small hole at end.

Thanks,
Steve

Painting the bathroom cabs sink/counter/tub

I'm looking to paint our bathroom tub and sink/counter combo. I've seen several products for fiberglass but have not seen anything for ABS plastics. Everything is solid but it looks cruddy and we want to update the look. I've hit the end caps with kills and latex and I was wondering if anyone has tried this in the bath with an acrylic sealer. Are there any other products out there that anyone can recommend? I think I saw a thread on this once but I can't find it now.

Quick reply

Thanks for the line on the thread. I also found something on the DIY network last night. Since I don't have any damage to the surfaces outside of discoloration, I think I'm going to go straight to a two part epoxie paint. I was actually eyeing a sprayable product the other day. I'll post my results in the coming days.

Krylon Paint

We have not had our airstream long, but have been working on it ALOT to get it ready to camp. It is in good shape for it's age, but the bathroom did not look good at all. I used krylon fusion plastic paint on the tub and surrounding area. First I removed all the trim, old caulk, etc. Then taped everything up that I did not want to paint. Then i started sanding, started with heavy grit and worked my way through until it was smooth. Note: make sure that when you are done sanding that you remove all the dust completely before painting. If you don't you will not have a smooth surface at all when you are done. I put about 3 coats of paint on it, giving it a good ammount of time to dry between coats. When I was done I put a clearcoat on it.
I really had my doubts about using this paint, but was just looking for a quick fix for now. We will do a more permanent job on it in the future, but for now believe it or not it actually looks good. I have had the tub full of water several times and even cleaned it with a rag and the paints is just fine!
I will post some pics of it tommorrow.

Does this take a special spray gun................also where do you buy this product from...do you have to order it, or available at hardware stores? The tubs and showers are they made of fiberglass or plastic.........I have a two part epoxy but it says not to use on fiberglass..........69 airstream....
