"Clearcoat" Flaking Off Shower Floor (Plastic)

I have a shower in a house I moved into that has what I thought were cracks onthe shower floor but as time has gone by, I find that the cracks are simply a coating over the plastic pan and I can flake off pieces of the "clearcoat" which really isnt' clear, it's a white (maybe poured) on the base which has a rougher surface. I'd like to repair or have repaired the floor to eliminate the cracks. There are no leaks (slab floor beneath) and where the so-called cracks are there is evidence of a dark stain around that particular area. The shower walls are faux marble (plastic) about 1/2" thick. Any ideas? Thanks, John

its probably the fiberglass flaking from someone using the wrong cleaning materials on it.

you could re glaze it pretty cheaply or hit a paint supply store and get a paint for it.
Its pretty easy but your have to be sure your prep work is good AND it wont be a forever fix depending on how much wear and tear it gets.
There are also companies that can do it but i dont know how much it runs.
