I know this sounds completely off the wall, but I am Rhino Lining my entire shower. The plastic in my shower is clean and flawless! I hate the idea of seams that need to be caulked, and there will always certainly be some little leak!

Rhino Line will seal everything and prevent any future leaks, and eliminate any maintenance. Additionally I will get a nice white surface on all sides, plus is textured to provide a non skid surface.
This gives me an excuse to modernize/ upgrade my fixtures to something other than the "gold" finish that used to be so stylish!

$200 for the real deal

I guess it's a layer of pure metal laminated to a laminate core (phenolic papers). The good thing is that it won't kink like metal will. I have seen samples and it's pretty cool. I don't remember pricing but it wasn't inexpensive. The prices range too depending on the metal. Someone on here wrapped a dinette in it. I remember seeing it but no clue where....

Rhino Lined Shower

Hey AtomicNo13 I would love to see pictures of your shower- that sounds like a really creative idea!

I called a local distributor today. The minimum order was a 4 x 8 sheet, and the cost was $175 plus shipping (about $50).

The sheets I posted about earlier from Home Depot cost a lot less. HD can order quite a variety of finishes and colors.

That sounds even better! Thanks! The guy at our HD wasn't very helpful, so I called a countertop place. I'll try back there and talk to someone else.

The help at HD isn't always very helpful or knowledgeable. There are brochures where they display the sheets. They only stock a few patterns. The brochure shows the other colors and patterns. Take the brochure to the desk in the kitchen area and they will order whatever you want. I was fortunate in that I wanted what they stocked.

Ta-Da!

Thanks for all your advice! I decided to paint. Two coats of mildew resistant primer, sanding after each coat, and two coats of an exterior grade paint. I also painted the Golden Rod (shower curtain rod) with aluminum paint to finish it off.


And I got so paint happy that I FINALLY painted our gas tanks and hitch area as well... So Shiny!

Did you coat your shower with Rhino Liner? If so can you post pics?
I am thinking of coating ours with Grizzlygrip?
