    Does anyone still make these, I know Malotte used to make fiberglass tubs, but they are no longer in production. I think they still have the mold, but I couldn't get a price from them.

    I would look for a good tub - steel. The problem with FG is that sometimes the internal face of the mold is made with the external face of the body part, and nothing fits. My brother purchased a tilt front end for a pickup, and had to narrow it - cost a ton. You could repair yours, too, I guess, but it's always a ? of $. I have the baby pooper for sale if you want it...
