How to Paint a Fiberglass Shower
- 1). Wash the fiberglass shower, using a coarse plastic brush. Use a heavy duty trisodium phosphate cleanser to remove soap scum. Rinse the shower with wet rags. Wait 2 to 4 hours for the shower to dry.
- 2). Enhance adhesion by abrading the shower with sandpaper. Scour the fiberglass until it has a slight grit.
- 3). Cover hardware and other areas of the shower you do not want painted with painter's tape.
- 4). Coat the abraded shower with acrylic latex primer, using a paintbrush manufactured for use with latex paint. Wait 4 hours for the primed shower to dry.
- 5). Wash the brush with tap water.
- 6). Coat the primed shower with appliance epoxy paint, using the clean paintbrush. Wait 20 hours before using the shower.
