Check into the following product; it's solid white and a little labor extensive with sanding, but it brushes on and covers in 2 coats at the price of around $40 at Lowe's. We just did our tub. You can mix color in it if it's too white for you.

How do you refurbish an old (1970s) fiberglass tub? It has been refurbished already and is peeling, cracking, and discolored.

Maybe it is time to replace it or try Bathfitters. They put a new plastic tub over the old one. A friend of mine did that and it looked pretty good. (04/14/2009)

Have you tried paint that is sold for fiberglass boat bottoms? I cannot recall the brand (maybe Interlux?), but about 10 years ago I used this on a bathroom sink and never had any issues with it. I know that I purchased mine at a chain hardware store (Menard's) and it was around $60, but it was hundreds cheaper than replacing the sink unit and it can be purchased in white or in multiple tints.

Probably in a hardware or home improvement store, you can find Rustoleum Tub and Tile Refinishing Kit. It can be used on ceramic, porcelain, or fiberglass tubs or walls and one kit is enough to give a tub 2-3 coats. Don't know how much wall area you're talking about, but maybe this can give you a starting point to try to figure how much you'd need. (06/05/2009)

I have a fiberglass tub and the floor of it is stained from being old. What is the best thing I can do to make it newer looking?

Once a fiberglass tub gets stained the best course of action is to have it re glazed. You can find people that do this in the yellow pages under bathroom/baths. (10/23/2006)

See if there is a Re-Bath in your area. I've been seeing ads here locally where I live where they say they can remove and replace one-piece fiberglass units, and was thinking of checking into it myself. http://rebath.com/ (10/24/2006)

I just called Re-Bath because of my stained tub. It was $3550.00 for a new tub liner (smallest size) and acrylic wall sections. It is cheaper to buy a new tub and have a plumber install, even after replacing tile. (11/13/2007)
