    Hello, Yes, actually if you know any body shops they will recommend a fiberglass bondo. I have used a brand called "Evercoat Glass-Lite" It is a waterproof fiberglass filler. Then naturally you would have to spray the "gelcoat" color finish on it. Wet sand to smooth finish. Hope this helps.

        when they would come on the job in finish and touch up the tubs, they would lock the door behind them.

        you could never miss the smell of bondo in the morning

                  I've seen a few fiberglass tub repairs and some of them were on the skid resistant surface on the bottom of the tub. A professional repair done flawlessly. Rick is right about them locking the door. When the company did the ones I saw, the technician wore a suit and a respirator and had a ducted fan to get the fumes out of the home. The gel coat is an epoxy paint like Imron (no longer made) and you don't want any of that in your lungs. If your tub is a Lasco, you can contact them for referrals.
