Repairing porcelain?

A big piece of tile fell on the corner of my tub when I was removing the old tiles. The top, inside corner of the tub was struck and a big chunk was dislodged. The hole is about the size of a quarter and goes down to the metal.

I'd like to repair it, but I don't know if there's a product out there to take care of it.

thanks in advance...

You'll need tow things. Firt, Bondo (yeah the same stuff used in automotive body work) and an epoxy paint designed for porcelain.

Any decent auto store should have the Bondo - you'll need to check Home Depot and some uch to find the paint. It's a two part, mix and apply. It adhere's to porcelain as well as other materials.

If the Bondo work is done correctly, the repair will be virtually invisible once painted.
