Need HELP to repair fiberglass tub finish

How do you repair surface scratches on a high gloss Sterling Vikrell Tub? The unit is made of Vikrell, a sold composite made of reinforced fiberglass. Company says to call a fiberglass or acrylic repair co. (None in area) Has anyone refinished High Gloss fiberglass to look like original finish? This tub is white. How difficult is it and how do you it?

I've worked extensively with fiberglass but not with regard to home fixtures. My experience is with boats. Sometimes you can put a new gel coat over badly scratched surfaces. Adhesion is always the challenge but you might look into boat hull products at a marine yard. Or in a catalog for marine applications.
