ABS bathroom repair

Has anyone responded? I have just looked around forums under painting and also looked under renovation blogs which discuss the bathrooms.
I have a caravel 66' and we are debating the same issue. It is my understanding you take out the shell and fix it from the bottom and spray paint it, those some have used rollers or brushes.
I thought it needs to be epoxy, but it is crazy to try to get someone to color or tint epoxy paint or find epoxy paint that I want. Everything is white, bone or black, navy..anything but blue or turq.

What have you ended up doing so far?

You might try the fiberglass shower/tub repair guys. There is a whole industry out there for repairing tubs/showers damaged during the construction of houses. Those 1 piece units must be installed during the earliest stages of framing, then get beat up during the rest of construction. Dropped hammers, 2x4's, etc wreak havoc on them, so then they must be repaired.
Might start by inquiring around the places that sell those units. Ferguson is one place that comes to mind. Good luck. John

Here's a new product that is EP Acrylic which is what is recommended for tub/shower/ ABS/Fiberglass by refinishers.
Different articles say the colors available are endless- too good to be true?
I will be researching this more Friday.

What I read on other pages is that this is what refinishers are using for kitchens, baths, showers, tubs.

Wife says gotta do!

She who must be obeyed says she ain't goin unless she can use the tub. Lots of confusing info for the non techie on here about ABS repair. Did you try this stuff and what was the result? As the nearest SW dealer is a long way off, I've got to ask the questions here - such as surface prep, application process, safety concerns (asuma victum from too many years smoking), drying time, etc....

Thanks

I thought I had responded to this, but maybe it didn't go through on my phone. I spoke to someone named Milton out of Houston S&W and he said it was not for use in a shower. Which is strange because I thought it said it was what professional refinishers use. So tired of getting runaround and different answers from everyone! I want choice of colors!

I may be stepping in at the wrong time.
But, I refinished my ABS plastic in my bathroom. As I had gutted the bathroom I had all the pieces out of the trailer. I would have hated to have painted with everything in place. I do know some people do not have a choice. With everything out I was able to water sand the surface. Then I bought two orders of TUBBY Tubby DIY - Bathtub Refinishing Kits, Enamel Repair Kits . It takes two coats I did the tub, sink, surround behind the toilet, the ceiling and wall. I did it in white as I hated the OLD cream yellow look.

I have see where some people who have the work space and equipment spray painted the epoxy paint like they do boats. I did not have that option although I may have been able to take it to a boat repair and see if they would have painted it for me.

I have a 1967 AS I have not started on. It has a turquoise bathroom. I want to keep it that color so I do not know how I am going to get it clean as new look.

I am very happy with TUBBY paint. I take very good care of it. I do not use my tub for a storage space. Sharp thing could scratch the surface. I do not use rough cleaners or scratches to clean the surface. Just use common sense.

Hope I haven't added more confusion to your search. My son is redoing his 69 bathroom and he is using TUBBY.

WOW, last time I looked at Tubby, there were 4 color choices!
My husband is afraid of it crumbling If we take it out.
Also, our upper bathroom is a fiberglass endcap.
YAY!
Thanks for making me look again!

I did Tubby on our AS four years ago and I am very pleased with it. Tubby has lots of colors.

When DIY redid a 70's AS Tubby what what they used in the bathroom. Of course the used a color I would not use. Dark Navy. As far as the end cap goes I Tubby it also. Why not? It has never peeled or chipped.

Good luck on your search.
