From the picture it looks great. I would use it as is and skip replacement with a new tub if it does not last.

However - - - - - I still wonder about a tiger stripe motif in Harley colors!!! LOL

Open floor plan is very popular right now.

Good Evening, Gordon, After I painted it I had to leave so I really didn't get a chance to look it over, right now it looks like a brand new tub . The proof would be how long will it last, time will tell. I'll install it tomorrow and get a surround and finish that up. Todd, thanks for the thought, but I can get into enough trouble on my own . there is potential there through . Ron, that's true.

Lynne, Thanks, in a past life, (before RA) I was a car painter and have been known to paint some weird things, (but never a bath tub) . I installed it tonight and hooked it up to the drains, now I need to find a method to water proof the walls, ie a tub surround.

They have some plastic stuff at Lowes or Home D we used to call "elephant skin" don't remember what it's real name was.
Flexible and very easy to cut.

Terry,
The tub looks great, and I'm sure you will come up with a waterproof wall covering for the bath, just have to look at your local Lowe's or Home Depot. Might even find the right size tub surround.The lip might work for the baskets, but I will tell you from experience that the hair spray cans and the other bottles in the bathroom won't stay put, I have to remove all those when traveling, they bounce right out and that is with air ride on the truck and an air bag on the kingpin.
Lloyd,
I agree with you and Terry with the need for additional licensing for larger rigs. i also agree that it should be federal instead of state to state. Pa and NY require an additional license for the larger rigs, and there are more northern and midwest, so I wouldn't say it was a southern thing, I think it is about even.
Bap,
See what happens when someone else comes up with an idea, haha. Glad to see that you are almost done with the '63 and almost ready to go on the '68.
Frank

Good Morning, Popeye, I think I've seen that stuff very thin, like a plastic sheet? Wonder how you put it up, maybe contact cement. Lloyd, thanks, the stuff you have a contact to I think is 3/8" not that it's too thick. Bap, you letting Debbie look at the forum? that'll get you in trouble every time . what I did with the tub was wash it good to begin with then use 220 sandpaper and 1/0 wire pad to get into the bottom where there is that pebbly texture, I went down to 400 sandpaper but you probley don't need to go that fine, then I washed it down again with a wax and oil cleaner I used on cars when I did body work, tact raged it, the paint layed down nice, just watch the corners. Like I said no idea how long it'll last, I'm thinking of spraying it with clear. Frank I agree those bottles will most likely end up everywhere if left there. I keep looking for surrounds the RV ones I would buy in a heart beat but they want alot for shipping so we are still looking.

RVPopeye,

The surround you speak of is made of Neoprene. It's a flexible product and can come in 5 pieces. The back and sides can be easily cut to fit any size tub. It's just over 1/16" thick. Easily cut with a utility knife. The corners usually have shelves. Different models available.
Glue it on and seal the edges and you're done.
As a contractor, I probably installed 100's. Very durable and widely used.
You can use contact cement, but as you all know, that's not very forgiving if you make a placement mistake. It comes with panel adhesive. Make sure you trowel the adhesive and not use directly from the tube. Makes for a smoother finish. Tape the edges and seams, let dry over night and then you can seal the edges with a tub and tile caulk.
Voila!

That looks good, lots of usable space.
Would you send some of that rain to Texas. I have ben home for a little over a week temps have ben in the 103 range and no rain officially for over 34 days. We got to much this spring but not much since then.
