    It's not a crack, just a chip in the outer surface.

    There are professionals that do this for a relatively low cost. I'm not impressed with the DIY kits.

    Google bathtub repairs in your town.

    I agree with sparky, repairs like this are the result of having the right tools, materials and proper preparation of the surface.

    Is that enamel that is chipped off? And the tub is made of steel?
