A small hole should be drilled at the end of each crack prior to making the repair. This keeps the crack from getting larger. The holes will help act like a rivit when properly applying a layer of bondo and fiberglass matt/mesh..then another finish layer of bondo. IMO the area repaired will be stronger than the rest of the tub.

Brilliant.... or very very Stupid Idea!

I was watching the idiot box the other night and saw a commercial for BATH FITTERS... it's the perfect fit!

So, someone ought to call these people and see if they can make a cover for the cracked ABS tubs or even for the endcaps from hell that never stop cracking!

I'm not into vintage except to watch from a safe distance, but wouldn't that be a hoot - if it's affordable - to replace those stained ugly old endcaps and shower pans?

I bought a epoxy resurface kit at ACE Hardware, two part..did it last winter, have used it many times and it is fine. I did, along with TSP use muric acid on the tub, if there was any impedded soap, that got rid of it. One kit did the entire bath, counter, sink. I then resealed all with parabond.

Was it a paint on or spray on?? And did you have to remove everything ans take it out of the trailer to do it, or did you resurface it in place? I need to do mine.

The epoxy was brushed on, did not remove anything except faucets/trim plate on shower, carefully taped the trim and edge. Also did a light sanding 1st as the surface had burns and scratches in it. The drains got alittle on them, however cleaned off with steel wool after it set up.

That's what I am looking for, the brush on kind. I don't want to take anything big out if I don't have to. I think the Tough as Tile has a brush on type but Lowe's was out of it the other day. I'll check our local Ace and see what they have. Thanks. Sandy

I did the Toaugh as Tile, from Lowe's/Home Depot can't remember which. I did both the paint on and spray can. The quart can only did one coat on the ceiling so I bought the can of spray and did the second coat. I have to say I didn't like it as well as TUBBY better. www.Tubbyusa.com it is $75.00 per kit and it would have taken atleast 3 kits to do my entire bathroom. I though I would save money and do the Tough as Tile for the ceiling. Tubby is snow white (beautiful) Tough as Tile is off white. Tough as Tile is cheeper but I wasn't impressed with the finish. Both are ok you just need to decide what if best for your pocket book. But if you do TUBBY you need to order all at once at the two coat have to be done in a timely period. If you don't you have to remove all you have done and start over. Everyone that has came and seen our 69 has though we had bought an all new bathroom. My bathroom was gutted and I did all of this in my garage. My only disappointment was putting it back together has caused some nicks and scratches, which I will doctor with some epoxy scratch fixer uper you can get as Lowes/Home Depot. I picked mine up at Ace Hardware. If anyone has question you can email me. I can send you photos.

Thanks for the great info everyone, I was wondering the best way to do my bathrooms. From the sounds of it, I can handle it by myself without ripping everything out. Does anyone know if there are other colors besides white?
Thanks again for the insight.

I also used Tough As Tile from Lowes, on my bath tub, sink, and sink counter. Quart was enough for two coats. It looks much better than old pinkish yellow stuff. My only complaint is the brush marks in some places. The bath walls and ceiling I did with paint, 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint.
Will show pics if anyone can explain how to post them. I just learned how. see next post.

Here are the pics of the finished bathroom. I did it without removing them from the AS. I did remove the sink, and replaced the faucet with a new one.

Tubby in colors

Chuck, the Tubby brand comes in 8 colors.
Jasmine, Whisper Blue, Light Almond, Sorrento Blue, Black, White, Red and Whisper Gray. Also, Tubby is a roll on, I loved this much better finish than the paint brush.
