    Bath repair 9th Jun 17 at 5:09 PM
    Hi,
    Our lovely daughter has managed to chip a little chunk out of the rim of our acrylic bath with a shower head. Does anyone know of a company that does repairs of this sort? It would really need to be an "invisible repair" ideally, so I thought I'd see if anyone has had an experience with good results.

    Thanks,
    Stephen.

    Thanks very much that looks good. The sanding part worries me though, do you end up with a really scratched patch?

    Go for a really fine grit cloth. 1200 plus.
