Tub refinish- painting over drain vs around

Have had issues with paint peeling around drain.

Painting over it sounds interesting and an option with my tub refinisher.

Which one would you think would last longer?

The drain cover should be removed, the tub surface cleaned and prepped before resurfacing. Reinstall the drain cover when dry. IMO painting around or over the drain cover is a bad idea!

You want it recoated also. If there is a stopping point with the new finish - that is where it has a good chance to fail.

This is a classic example of polishing a turd - waste of time for how long it's going to look good afterward if you ever use the sink.
