Shower re-finish help

Hey forum!

I'm looking to re-finish the shower basin of my '80 Excella II. The shower itself is in decent condition, it just looks really ugly. I think previous owners may have put down some sort of rubberized paint that is now peeling off.

Any ideas what products would work best? A friend suggested an epoxy coating, another friend thought of using garage floor paint, and I found a shower/tub refinishing kit at Home Depot (which is also epoxy). I want to be sure to get an even coat and to cover the stains/discoloration.

Thanks for your help!

I am not familiar with the Home Depot kit. However I have seen some awesome results using the POR-15 Flexcote Marine White epoxy paint.

There also have been some people that have had it professionally done by a the people that redo house tubs too.

The key is in the prep work and getting everything grease free and soap free so you have a solid substrate for the new stuff to adhere too.

Thanks Aaron! I'll check it out. I also read about some people sprinkling a layer of sand after the second coat and before the third to make a non-skid surface. Have you ever heard of that?

I have never used sand on a shower, I have used it on steps and boat decks though. Might be a bit sharp on the feet.
