It can be spray painted Mike. In fact, it is the recommended application method. BTW, it is NOT thick.

John who? My older brother? If so, yes, we talk all da time.

I would suggest giving a local tub repair company a call and see if they have anyone who can help you out with the colour match issue.
I am not sure about this. Can I go to an specialist, ask him to match the color, buy a small quantity from him and mix the hardener when I am ready to do the job? Maby to nice to be true!!!

You will never know if you dont ask

If you tell them its an old vintage trailer project you might find they are interested in helping out with such a project. They may have someone just like the fellow who put on the work shop at the rally for us who would be more than happy to help you out.

You never know the generosity of some folks. When I first acquired my trailer the brake wiring was messed up and it eventually stopped working. I wasn't thrilled at the idea of towing it to an RV shops due to having no brakes and to get to any I needed to go 30 miles on a high speed highway with a few *really* big hills to go down in between but figured that was going to be my only option. I called around to find a shop willing to take a look at/fix the problem. One of the real big major RV shops on hearing I had an older small fiberglass trailer, went off and called an employee who has done a lot of small fiberglass trailer rebuilds. That party ended up coming out to my house and fixing it all up for me for a *very* reasonable price..... never thought that would happen.
