Hot Tub Resurfacing and Repair
Spa and Swim-Mor Refinishing
(click a thumbnail to launch the full size picture)
Just a note to say that I am very happy at how my
hot tub looks now after applying the gel coat paint. The
hot tub is almost 30 years old and was stained and cracked
and peeling. I had to do some fiberglass repair before painting

The instructions that you
sent were invaluable, so that even an amateur like me could
easily do the painting.
Thanks again. Bill Coppenbarger Plano,
