    I have an old steel bathtub and I'm curious as to what is the best paint and what is the best procedure to paint it? I have used bathtub paint from Menards twice now, and each time it maybe lasts a year before it begins to peel.

    Any information on how to paint the tub so it lasts much longer like the original paint would be great!

    Thanks!

    I'd use an epoxy and spray it.

    Try and find a real company to reglaze it, that's all they do everyday.
    Mines lasted 10 years now even after 3 rentals.

    I agree with Joe the pros use products you can not buy and they know what they are doing. A year is good, mine was ugly the next day.
