Painting walls of wet bath

I have a wet bath in my C-11 and anticipate that it will see regular use.

Who has painted their wet bath? What works?

I used POR-15's White Coat and I use the shower all the time. Has a glossy finish and is easy to keep clean.

cheers,
steve

Ditto

I haven't done the one in the Airstream...yet. But I have used it on a fiberglass tub at a beach house that is rental property. That was two years ago and is still looks good.

You might want to consider Awlgrip. It's a marine product. Expensive and should be professionally done but a fantastic product. The 2000 series can be applied and the imperfestions buffed out to a beautiful polished finish.

Awlgrip can be applied with a foam roller and then "tipped" with a brush to get near spray quality finish. I like the Awlgrip Polyester Urethane Topcoat because it resists "yellowing" as it ages. Good stuff!

Thanks for the replies.

I'm using Brightside since it is locally available while Awlgrip is not.

I don't believe I can use a two-part urethane without stripping the existing coating off the walls, which are a combination of aluminum, wood, and fiberglass. That would be an enormous job.
