I want to refinish the shower/tub unit in the guest bath while my wife is in Jamaica this week. She absolutely cannot stand the mess. :cool: I talked to a couple guys in St. Tammany Parish this morning, but, they can't come this week. Well, I'm gonna tackle it myself. :eek: Any you guys done this? Any helpful hints would be greatly appreciated.

By asking "Any you guys done this?" are you talking about refinishing a shower/tub or pissing off the ole lady?? Cuz I've done ALOT of the second one!!! lol

I dont think any of us need help pissing off the old lady. Form reading some of these post we have a few people who are profesionals at it.

Can we please stay on topic? :smokin: :shaking: I need some help here.

Jordan, I already got the primer/paint. It's a two-part epoxy. I ain't going the rattle can route. I want it to last.

Call Re-bath. They specialize in tubs for the elderly. They have grab handles and benches in them.

Finished painting the unit yesterday. Turned out remarkably well considerin' I had no idea what I was doin'. :rolleyes: I water sanded it today with 1000# sandpaper and, hopefully, I'll be able to find the glaze/polish I need tomorrow so I can buff it. While it is somewhat rewarding to know that I did this myself.....I doubt I'll ever tackle another one. :shaking:
