Paint over Fiberglass Tub Patch


I recently repaired a small hole in my Fiberglass tub with an autobody repair kit. The tub holds water without leaking, but I would like to paint over the repaired area. Are there any aerosol-based paints that would work for this application and stand up to the abuse?
Thanks in Advance, -a12vman

Go to a boat store and look for a gelcoat repair kit. Fiberglass tubs are a whole lot like fiberglass boats just inside out :-)

Tough as Tile comes in a kit of two spray cans(2 coats); it's designed for tub refinishing. I saw it at Lowes.
BUT,you can't clean with abrasive cleaners like Ajax,or use bleach. Bleach causes yellowing.The kit directions mention this and suggest Simple Green as a cleaner.

None of those solution hold up as well as the original finish. Which is gelcoat. Which can be bought in kits to fix tubs and at your local boat store.
