I am remodeling a mobile home and I just noticed a small (maybe 2" +/-) crack in the bottom of the one-piece fiberglass shower.

Can I repair this easily with fiberglass resin?

If it IS fiberglass you stand a chance of repair, but first you need to find out WHY it cracked in the first place. If it is an ABS plastic tub, use a sawsall to fix it and put a new one in.

It is a 1-piece fiberglass shower stall. The previous owner was 300+lb. That may have had something to do with it...

The home is a 1999 Champion and the shower is original.
