shower door painting


Is there a place that will repaint your shower tracks and bars that will last? I have a brushed bronze finish and would like it to be an oil rubbed bronze. Are there places that do that?

Never seen a place that does this, it's been tryed by lots of other posts on any site I've even been on and it just does not hold up.

They are not painted,that's an anodized finish that's done when they were manufactured.

Although still in testing the durability of this it's been ok now for about a year. There is a canned spray paint (Rustoleum) that is oil based that comes in oil rubbed bronze, not perfect but looks good. I disassembled sanded, cleaned and primed with metal primer then painted them and let them dry for a week. Put everything together and it looks great and has held up well for what it cost, less that $30.00 for the entire thing.

I did this as a test only as the replacement was going to be about $1200 and didn't want to spend that much.
