Finishing a Trough Shower


I'm going to be installing a watering trough as a shower and am wondering if there is any kind of product that I can coat the inside with to give it a more finished look? Epoxy? Porcelain repair kit? I'm going to calk the rough edges of the seam on the outside and spray paint it a rubbed bronze but am not sure if that will work on the inside. Inside the 'tub' there's a big soldering glob where the sealed the seam. Also, any ideas for installation? I have a good idea of how we're going to install it but don't want to miss anything.

Interesting---

A paint on epoxy coating might stick---but the tub is rather flexible--so the work may need periodic painting.

The bottom of a watering trough is flat---How are you planing to drain it?
