Shower Pan Replace or re-paint?

I would like to upgrade our masterbath room shower. It has a 48"x32" molded shower pan. It's in great shape but the off white color is growing old. rather then replace, is there a way to repaint? perhaps some type of marine base paint. I have been reading up on how to replace it but it seems like a rather big project. Any thoughts out there??

I have seen on some home improvement show they used some sort of epoxy paint on a tub. Maybe this would work. What the heck, if you don't like it then you can replace it. I would contact a plumbing contractor and see what they say.

Yes, but... After years of exposure to soap suds the cleanup and prep will be critical. Start with a quality tub and tile cleaner and get into all the crevices and crannies thoroughly. If you don't like what you see at the supermarket, get a meaner product at a janitorial supply outlet. Scuff sanding the surface would be next followed by final cleaning with a good solvent like acetone (much favored by workers with polyesters and epoxies).

Good stuff, but pricey and limited in color selection, but that's your choice. Alternatively, any two part epoxy will do nicely. All this assumes that the shower pan is molded from a material compatible with paints, solvents and such. Check an inconspicuous arae first and then give it your best shot. If it succeeds you'll be $$ ahead. Good luck.
