I recently had a crack in my fiberglass bathtub. I was able to apply and sand a fiberglass patch and the spot is hardly noticeable to touch. On the other hand, I now have a 4" x 6" resin colored patch in an off-white tub.

Is there a way to repaint/recoat this area? If not, is there a way to repaint/recoat the entire tub? Obviously I'm trying to avoid replacing the entire tub. Please help!

There are many whites available in f'glass (I work for a gelcoat mfg and we have over 1,000 whites). Your best bet is to pick up a BUNCH of paint chips from a store. If you have a window in the room check the chips in the daylight and at night. If not you really have to eyeball it good. Find a boat repair shop in your area and they can either tint you something close or point you in the right direction. You will need catalyst to make the product harden they can give you the ration info..perhaps you could dab it on or air brush it(?) we deal with boats, rvs so how you would do a small area I am not sure. We had a quote to do ours at home for some spots on the bottom of the tub) and it was $1500...I don't think so. To do an entire tub you probably have less than 10-15 dollars worth of gelcoat! Good Luck!
