Painting a door
« on: July 06, 2019, 02:17:50 PM »
Hi,
My new shed has vinyl siding but a primed, fiberglas door. I was advised to paint the door, so I bought a quart of Clark & Kensington Premium Hi-Gloss Enamel Acrylic Latex, tinted white.  I'm not a painter, but hope to do this job well.
Will it work better to remove the door and lie it flat while painting or paint while the door is vertical, in place?
Will I get good results using a good brush, or is it better to use a roller for this one door? 
I'm definitely planning to paint the exterior surface.  Is there a good reason to paint the inside as well?
Any other tips are more than welcome.
Thank you.
Bob

No comments?  Oh well. 

I took off the door, laid it flat, and painted it yesterday. It seemed to go well.  I don't know if having the door vertical would have been easier, but my fear was that I would have more chance of runs.  With the door horizontal, perhaps any thick paint blobs will level out smoother.
