Help! Bathroom Restoration
This is a job that I left till last on the restoration of my '64 Overlander. The Overlander's bathroom was a faded and stained avacado green that just did not coordinate with the blue/white/silver color scheme of the refurbished interior. Rather than purchase painting equipment that wouldn't see much use beyond this project, I hired a local bath refinishing contrator to do the job. It turned out that it was a good idea as there were three different kinds of products used in the bath - - fiberglass, ABS plastic, as well as an unidentified plastic product - - each required a different primer/surfacer as well as modifications to the final top coat. The process was a great success, and the cost was less than $600.00 complete.
It took a little searching to find a contractor who was willing to work within the confines of an Airstream bathroom, but after talking to 15 contractors three agreed to look at the job. In the end, I went with the contactor who was referred by my plumbing and heating contractor - - he was a perfectionist and actually had the lowest bid as well.
Good luck with your bathroom project!
