Default Polystyrene Tub Repair / Damage

A new polystyrene tub had liquid nail residue on the side and center of tub. The Aqua Glass web site called for acetone to clean up mess; however, the acetone melted finish and created several 1/16 craters. I later learned that the tub was from a “sister company” of Aqua Glass that uses polystyrene, but publishes under the Aqua Glass name. Does anyone know how to repair the damage?

I am in the same boat with a poly tub. I have been a plumber for 30 years and never saw a piece of junk like this tub. I dumbly dropped one ball of solder into the tub and it scorched a 3" mess. I did tub repair fiberglass and acrylic and am stumped on this one. DELTA says replace. Can not be repaired. HELP!!.
