Hey there, i im trying to finish off the resto on the trailer and one of the last things to do is paint the terrible looking sink. Its an eyesore really being avacado green and chipped and worn out pretty badly. What im wondering is there any way of re painting it. I have called a bunch of different places and they say i need a two part epoxy paint. Thing is, you cant buy them in quarts, you can only buy them in gallons, $60 each so id have to pay 120 some odd bucks just to paint a tiny little sink. Not going to happen. Alot of ppl say just normal tremclad paint or any water proof paint will just blister up and flake off. So im kinda stumped, can anyone help. Thanks alot.

How about chucking it and getting a stainless steel bar sink. This is for an eBay auction and it appears they only ship within the USA, but you'd get the idea:


Then you'd never have to worry about chipping paint.

See if Escape has one, bet Rease would sell it to you.

Just an idea.

You might try dropping by a TAP Plastics (or similar) place. They sell quarts of marine resins and epoxies there as well as the pigments you need for tinting. Marine stores will carry similar supplies as well.

That said, spreading epoxy out so that it looks good on a curved surface is very tricky. Personally I wouldn't even try . . . any job I did would look kind of amateurish. I'd buy a stainless sink and install that instead.

Good luck.

Painting is a no brainer. You will never be happy with it. They are right go SS.
Try some of the RV places in the lower mainland and see if the have one out of a wrecked camper or RV
