Clean door again with Dirtex after using tack cloth? And a priming question.
 
I'm in the process of refinishing a wood panel door. So far, I've cleaned it with Dirtex, repaired cracks and holes with wood filler, spot sanded the repairs, light fine sanded the entire door to rough up the surface, vacuumed, and gone over the door with tack cloths. Questions:

1. Prior to priming, since I already used tack cloths, do I still need to clean the door again with Dirtex?

2. Since I will be priming the entire door with X-I-M UMA, should I still first spot prime where I made repairs? Or will priming the entire door take care of that?

Ultimately I will be painting with Duron Signature Select interior acrylic semi-gloss.

Thanks, everyone, for your continuing help.

No do not use the Dirtex again. It leaves a film that needs to be rinced off.
No clue what X-I-M UMA is, I just use Zinzzer 123 as a primer.
Once you prime it, look it over again, somehow you always seem to miss a flaw that shows up with the primer, pants not going to cover it, just sand and prime it again, then paint.
And I use an enamel paint for a finish paint. It's a much tougher paint that holds up to scrubbing.

Sounds like you've done everything right...You do not need to clean again with Dirtex (btw, it does NOT leave a residue behind that needs rinsing - one of the beautiful things about Dirtex)...spot priming should not be necessary...Duron Signature Select is a fine choice for finishing.

During our last conversation, a couple of the guys mentioned that the UMA didn't brush out too well - if you have that experience, it won't hurt to add a little water or floetrol for a better brush app - remember, in either case, a little goes a long way...and if adding floetrol, you may want to give the prime coat a couple extra hours before applying the Duron finish.

Best of luck.

Dirtex doesn't leave a residue. Tack cloths on the other hand can leave a waxy residue so be careful about that. UMA is perfectly fine though maybe a bit overkill for what you are doing.
