Por-15'in the tub?

Tomorrow I was planing on por'in inside my tub and I wanted to ask what's the best way to lay it on there? Brush? Roller? Just throw it on there lol just wanted to know some tips. Also what kind of sand paper should I use to prep the tub?

I used this on my Datsun z car when I restored it, I used aircraft paint stripper to completely strip the old paint, but in your case, I would just use 150 grit sandpaper to make the surface rough. I used a brush to apply it, worked well enough. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SUFFICIENT VENTILATION.

80 or 100 in bad spots, brush it on.

Where would I get such aircraft paint stripper of able to? And there will be plenty tops going to be off and outside. While applying it will sun shining on it be bad?

Aircraft stripper from any auto parts store. And I applied everything indoors when I did it so I'm not sure of that, but I know its UV rated. If you havent already purchased the POR-15, Theres is a less expensive product called Zero-Rust Zero-Rust - ZeroRust - Rust Repair, I think its better, because you can paint right over it. with por15 I believe you have to buy one of there top coat products provided by por15 which is another expense.
