Refinishing Shower Frame


I have a 90’s Bath with shower stall. Frame is made of aluminum with polished brass finish. Looking to remove glass panels and paint/refinish frame. Looking for a antique black bronze finish. Any product or application recommendations? Refinish product must be rated for water contact.

Ayuh,.... The Problem yer gonna have is,....

The coatin' on it now is Anodized on,......
Unless you remove ALL of the anodizin', nothin' will stick to it,....

If ya grind off All of the anodizin, with a ssteel brush, yer left with bare aluminum,.....
To paint bare aluminum, there's a several step process, just to get to the Primer stage,.....
After the primer is on,...
Most any Quality paint will hold up, til ya scrub it with any sorta scrubbin' pad,....

So, in reality, replacin' the stall is the best way to change it's color,......

Re: Refinishing Shower Frame


I had the same problem getting rid of 70's gold in a home, BONDO is dead right.

If it is just the door, you can order a reframed door for several hundred dollars, but you have to shop around.
