Default Shower remodel?

Birds, has anyone replaced the shower in a Bird? Or perhaps painted the fiberglass? Any suggestions? Would it be better to leave the vintage greenish/blueish/tealish?

took my FC to McDonalds in Colombus GA to get their slant on redoing the RB shower stall. They said it had to be replaced w/flat panels, didn't feel they knew about a recoating product. Still haven't done anything with it, still gets me clean.

There are professional companies that spray refinish tubs and showers for homeowners and Hotels. The products are dangerous for your health and the prep work has to be done very well.

Locally I've seen boatyards repaint fiberglass hulls with Imron Paint and that lasts for many years. Its a two part paint a little difficult to use and very bad to breath. Re gelcoating is also a option and is probably what the original is.

I painted a hull with Interlux which makes a durable 2 part paint. Awlgrip is a favorite too.

There is a product at the big box stores used for painting laminate countertops. I bet it would work well. I plan to buy it and use it for a fiberglass utility sink in my garage. If it works well, I'd consider it for the bird's shower / vanity sink. It must be self leveling, chip resistant and very hard. I'd guess some form of two part epoxy.
