    Hi
    I have a recently installed acrylic bath tub and there seems to be a very small chip (it really is small) but, me being the perfectionist I am, wanted to see if I could repair/fill the chip.
    Are there any methods / tried and tested products that anyone can recommend?
    cheers :)

    I looked into this before and phoned the bath manufacturers.
    Apparently they sell a kit to repair and touch up for only £39. :eek:

    You can use car body repair and buy enamel paint but it is difficult to match up the colour.

    if th repair kit is
    what you failed to say is that a duravit bath averages @ £1,000.00 so £73 is nothing
