I think we'll go with " Tubby" because we can choose the color we want. The other brand that Lowes carries only comes in white. At our store anyway. Any thoughts?

The white may be easier to touch up later, if needed, vs colors.

True....but I'm just not a big fan of white. I don't know why....To steril....not earthy enough...I can't really pin point it.

Kit went for around $38 Also remove ANY silicon rubber..messes the job up good.

I own bathroom and kitchen refinishing here in Austin TX and I actually do enjoy seeing people up for the challenge in refinishing a tub for themselves. Preparation is key, and it looks like you're definitely taking the right steps. The kits that fail are the persons that refinish the tub right after they've taken a shower - lol.

I have a question about repairing a split on the counter top in the bath. It is almost all the way across running back to front.
We are going to support it from the bottom and bring it back together but what should we fill it with?

Also the inside of the front end cap over the dinette is split in a couple of places. What should we use to repair that?

I would love to get these repaired and the inside painted while the weather is nice.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Our shower pan is now out and we will be starting on the finish this weekend. We bought the Tough as Tile from Lowe's (spray on). Hope it all goes well. We will also be doing the medicine cabinet.

We did have an issue on the back side with a hole. It seems some pipes behind the tub were rubbing against the backside of the pan and made a whole. It had been patched from the front. We will make sure the pipes are secured to the wall and reinforce the back of the pan.

Good question. I've wondered about that too.

thanks Mary

Right on about the respirator! My biggest concern about doing this work is that I have asthma. What type of respirator are you using? Were you able to find out how long this product gasses out? I'm pretty sure there are no "green" products so I haven't even searched.

In any case, you are my new hero. Please post pictures when you feel you can.

Iris

Say, this has been a fascinating topic. I had wanted to refinish my tub and sink for a couple of years now, but always put it off, cause I just wasn't sure about which technique to apply. I now have more to go on thanks to these threads.

From what I gathered here my 69er has ABS and not fibreglass. If I'm off let me know.

For our 69 tradewind, we used the Sherwin Williams Tile Doc two years ago, used it quite a bit, lots of baths for our 2 year old and a few showers ourselves, and always that little bit of storage inside and the finish is holding up great.

You are correct, ABS plastic.

Tile Doc huh? I should give that a try. How was the application? Are the white rear bath photos you have posted the finished product? Looks great.
