    If it has been previously painted, you will need to remove and smooth all of the old paint first. Then follow instructions on an epoxy paint kit made specifically for bath tubs.

    Just saw a cast iron tub refinisher on This Old House. They do everything thoroughly and turn out a beautiful product. The owner of the company said that if it is used gently and cared for properly they hope for 10 years life of the finish.

    Bathfitter is insanely expensive but may be your best choice if you don't want to replace it.

    I have had estimates on properties from Batfitters and it runs over 3 thousand dollars. You can buy a tub restore product called Homax sold at home depot, but only available in white and almond. I actually used this to change a tub from blue to white! I have used that and it does a great job-runs about 50.00. Wear a mask! Rustoleum also has a product sold in quarts for tub and tile and runs about 30.00. Both looked nice when finished. I know the Homax held up as I did that on a rental. The Rustoleum looked good, but I sold the property, so not sure how it held up.

    Had bathtub epoxy painted many yrs. ago and had to go away for the weekend the smell was so pungent...that good it was Easter where we could leave windows open all day while work was being done. As soon as workman left, we were out the door with our suitcases and on our way to Williamsburg VA. Eventually replaced tub a/c anything sharp dropped in the tub cut the paint immediately,.
