I have a cast-iron claw-foot bathtub and I want to repaint it & install it in my new master bathroom. The inside of the tub has a couple of rust areas. Any ideas on getting rid of the rust spots (never to be seen again) then painting the tub (i.e., type of paint). Thanks!

There is a product called POR-15 Whitecoat, this product will not chip, crack or peel and it is rock hard when dried. You can get it at the Restomotive Laboratories. Call 1-800-457-6715. I have used it on many claw foot tubs in the past.

I have painted two tubs (one cast iron) with a product called "Tub and Tile Paint" available from Mills Fleet Farm. It comes in two cans that have to be mixed. It can also be tinted to any color. It is self-leveling so no brush marks are left. I've had great success with this.
