I have never done a plastic tub. I have used two part paints over porcelain type tubs though. Tubby paint is not here in the states. We do however have resurface paints for tubs. The shine should be dulled. Your goal with the paper is to remove the very top surface of the glaze only. You what to "etch" it with the paper. This should be enough bite for the paint. Then clean "all" the dust out. It would be good to use a degreaser cleaner (For paint prep something such as denatured alcohol normally work well for this). last use a tack cloth to make sure you got all the dust and bits out of there. I am not sure if tubby product needs any other prep I wouldn't think so. I found their tool free number "Tubby free phone 0800 328 4324"
