Scratched 1-2mm deep 75mm long; too deep to polish out.
Has anyone attempted a repair using the 2 pack kits I have seen
Were the results good?
This bath is brand new and we haven't even finished installing it yet :(
The whirlpool equipment fitted to it make it worth repairing rather than
Functionally yes. I have made a several year lasting 'temporary' repair
using 2 pack wood filler (this can be sanded very vey smooth and then
spray enamel painted). This was to repair a leaking split.
You can still see the repair so it won't haul you out of the hole you are
in - you have my sympathies.

OK folks. Scotch brite pad carefully applied until acrylic was abraded
down beyond level of scratch (more like 1mm than 2) then toothpaste then
proprietary acrylic bath polish.
Having done the scratch in the new bath I then turned my new found skill
to the customers existing bath (which he had scratched himself with a
dropped tile and fixed that as well.)
Just the one pad; rinsing it off periodically helped keep it clean.
Must have taken about an hour to do both scratches.
The pads were green (medium ?).
I've since been told (but have not tried it) that tile grout can also be
Not sure about the water based ones. The very best from the wear point of
view were the two part isocyanates, but they're sort of banned now -at
least for factory use. I was thinking more of cellulose which is pretty
similar to perspex in the way you polish it.

When I bought a shower tray recently, I was advised to get one with an
acylic cap. Apparently you can use T-cut to bring up the finish when
you're done scratching it. I have yet to try it though...
