    I am thinking of painting my shower with the Tubby paint resurfacing kit. My question is, has anybody used this and if so was it any good?

    Thanks for any feedback.:)

    We used a firm called Speedcoat two years ago, came to the house and did a great job! With warranty!

    Speedcoat as above is a tried and tested spray applied textured rubber compound with a proven record
    The product you mention I've never heard of in 30 yrs
    Not much help but read between the lines

    I understand your message. My problem is Spain, about 700 quid to get back to UK then pay for the Speedcoat.

    Because I've never heard of it I just finished googling
    I have seen it, beforeits 40 years old plus
    Same suit new name
    In a nutshell and to be fair to the product
    If it's purely cosmetic it will look better for it but it will still look like a painted shower tray
    If it's a cracking repair scenario then it's a born to fail idea
    That said it's always going to be 80% preparation 15% product andetails 5% luck with that stuff it is after all only a two pack paint that is better spray applied anyway
    My personal opinion is you will be disapointed if your looking for a new shower appearance
    Good luck prove me wrong you know you want too:D
