My bathtub is the older green type. 1960's tub. My brother said there is a certain type of paint you can get that can be used on the tub to change the color. Has anyone used this paint before, do you recommend it and what is it called. Thanks

The same electrostatic painting that is done by appliance repair companies to change or repair the color of the washer or dryer is the same paint and technique used on bath tubs. Some pointers though. Make sure all of the chrome trim is removed before they paint, so when you put the waste and overflow on, it sits on the new paint, rather than the paint ending at the waste and overflow drain. Othewise, the water will get under the surface of the new paint and peal it off. Also remove all grout around the edge of the tub and recalk after the tub is painted. Again this is to protect against the water getting under the edge of the paint.

good luck
