Can anyone tell me how to go about refinishing a cast iron bathtub? I've recently come into possession of one, from the early 1930s, and the body is in great shape! I would really like to restore it and be able to use it in my new home. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated!

My best to ya and hope this helps.
