Wink Bathtub Touch Up

MY BATHTUB HAS A CHIP IN IT ON THE SIDE OF THE INSIDE OF THE TUB. IT IS NOT VERY LARGE, ABOUT THE SIZE OF A QUARTER, BUT IT IS STARTING TO RUST. IS THERE ANYWAY THAT I CAN REPAIR IT ?

Cool

You can use Appliance Touch-Up liquid. It drys hard as a rock.
It is made to touch-up bright white appliance enamel chips, but I have used it successfully on chips in both of my fiberglass tub/showers.
It comes in a little bottle with a cap brush (like nail polish). Available at appliance or hardware stores.
Thoroughly sand/clean off the rust and dry the chip spot (I use a hairdryer for this).
Brush on the Appliance Touch-Up and smooth up the edges with a Q-tip and acetone (nail polish remover). Let it dry overnight.
You may need to apply more than one coat to fill the chip and get it smooth.
Good Luck!
Mike
