Default Bathtub refinishing

We are planning to remodel a rarely used second bathroom.
The tub is the original since we moved in 27 years ago.

Material of the tub appears to be a acrylic/resin type. Color is brown/tannish and the surround is a match of the tub material and the same color.

Wondering if the tub is some type of "liner" that was installed with the matching surround.

Main question is, even if a liner, could the tub be refinished/colored by a Miracle Method type process?

Looking for general feedback/as we are just in the initial planning stage.

Thanks in advance

My daughter has the same thing in her condo. I believe the tub and surround may be fiberglass. There are epoxy paints on the market for this application. Try a real paint store. If you go that route, follow the directions for prep scrupulously with no short cuts.
