    Does anybody in the Seattle area reporcelain antique toilets? I love my early 1900's toilet but the porcelain is cracking so I would like to have someone redo it. Any ideas? Thanks!

    You could build a new house for less than that would cost!

    Applying porcelain to a "china" fixture is a "melting" process and your toilet would NOT survive it. It can ONLY be done during the original manufacturing process. Some fixture refinishers CAN install a new surface, but it will not be as durable as the original. It WILL be expensive, however.
