Pease Homestead steel door needs a new finish
 
We have a Pease Homestead steel door in the utility room. The door has a grey finish (paint?). This door leads from the room to the outside. The door was installed at least 25 years ago by previous owners. The door has weathered over time, and needs a new finish.

Questions:
(1) Can I paint the door, both inside and outside?
(2) If so, should I prime it first if there is already a finish (grey) on the door?
(3) Any particular paint that I should use?
(4) Anything else I should consider?

Thank you.

What is the paint condition?

What color are you covering?

Good exterior latex has come a long way.

I should have included more details - thanks for the input.
Paint condition - wearing a lot; can see metal in a few places.
Color covering - medium grey

Thanks...

Sand, prime, paint.
