Fiberglass shower stall

Hi Fellas.Well it's been awhile since I have been on here and I guess you know what that means,I'm looking for some of you guy's to help me with a little problem.It's regarding a fiberglass shower stall in our ensuite.If any of you can remember last time i was on here in last summer I was redoing the master bedroom.Well I'm on to the ensuite now and well back to the shower stall.Can a fiberglass shower stall be repainted?Or gelcoat or whatever?The toilet ,sink and shower stall are grey,we would like to replace with white fixtures but I can't see ripping the shower stall out and encountering who knows what kind of problems with that.I would rather replace the toilet and sink and see if the shower stall can be repainted instead of taking it out.I really would like to be able to have a top job done,I don't want to be told from a tradesman in the business in my area of the country that it can be done only to have the paint come off a year or two later.Please let me know your thoughts guys
Many Thanks P.S. Would this subject be better in another forum on here or will it get more attention here?

It can be, but it will probably be cheaper for you to replace it. You need special products for refinishing of tubs, and your shower stall. You can't just by these products at your local big box store and to apply them you will need to use an HVLP sprayer.
