    I've just dropped a hinge whilst hanging a bathscreen over my white acrylic bath and it's now left a small chip on the top inside edge.

    Can anybody recommend a DIY white acrylic repair kit?

    Thanks all.

    Thanks Andy.
    Have you used this product? If so, is it a good match for a standard white acrylic bath? Still, its cheap enough to buy a mix a small amount before using it on the bath.

    What would you recommend for polishing over the area after the repair.

    I haven't used it on a bath but it is good stuff and will stick to most things.

    Mix some up and check the colour against your bath, you could see if you could T Cut it.
