Bath Tub Redo


I know of no good DIY way to paint a bathtub and have it last
The kits at HD and L are exceptionally bad

I have seen the specialists do it successfully...pretty amazing actually
I'm a professional painter (and a stingy one at that) and an avid DIYer and still I would sub that out to a specialist
