    Did this some time ago, but I don't think we can treat the surface enough to have the paint adhere long enough. The kit was not cheap, but I am not sure I would do it again. Check professionals, & your paint dealer, they my have improved the program.

    I use Epoxy paint, it can be tricky. Do one coating and let sit, it must be very dry. Do not over apply, as it runs. Apply another coating and let it set up. This is 2-3 day application, so be patient. Always have good ventilation. Good luck!

    I used vinyl contact paper in a vertical striped pattern so seams do not show. Though not what you normally see, it actually turned out very pretty & color ordinated with my decor. It's been up for almost 5 years. Water & heat from showers & baths have had no effect on how well it has held up. When I get tired of that color scheme, I'll replace it with another color & pattern I like.

    I would not try it myself...I had a professional re do my tub and it looked great for about 5 years, then started showing wear and rust around the drain. And you absolutely cannot use anything abrasive on it! Are you sure it's yellowed and not just stains/scum? Gel-Gloss makes a great product for polishing that material.
