Just out of curiosity, why are you only considering SW Paint? ...and why wouldn't you just ask them?

I have sw dealer not bm. Most of the pro painters here use to preferr one of these.

I'm thinking Resilence or Duration.

The problem here is you've already decided on SW, but rather than rely solely on their advice or recommendations, you seek professional advice from faceless "experts" on this chatline...Over the course of this conversation, you'll get a lot of good advice from very knowledgeable, experienced people - and, if this posting runs true to so many others, you'll also get a lot of...um...less-than-good advice from those not so knowledgeable. Since you've already decided on this particular manufacturer, why do you not trust their expert advice to provide their best product/system for your project?

I don't mean to sound harsh toward you or the responders here...I commend you for wanting to get as much good and reliable info as you can before starting a project - and I really have a great respect for the knowledge and expertise many of the responders on this forum has to offer. Usually, though, we're put in a position to make recommendations of systems and procedures, but will often times throw in our preferences (as it relates to brand names) as examples of those products that'll make our systems & procedures work best for us...

My fear, being the purist that I am, is that since you've already decided on a brand, and have come to this place for the best specific product recommendation, you may not give proper credence to your SW person for his/her recommendation, or worse, not engage him/her at all in the conversation. In either event, what happens if the advice you receive on this post turns out to be antagonistic to what SW recommends?

I don't like Duration for doors. It's heavier bodied and difficult to use on doors. And, sometimes it has a stickiness to it. I prefer All-Surface enamel or SuperPaint. You can't go wrong either way. Just make sure the door is not GALVANIZED or you will have loads of trouble.

Looked OK to me. But now the doors are starting to yellow if you will. I have decided on a color sw tricorn black 6258. Mastercraft's website says. Lightly sand with fine grain. Ok i'm thinking 150-180 grit. I understand scuff up for better adhesion. Then Clean door. Go with high quality latex. I'm kind of afraid to mess with them now there galvanized. So we are all in agreement this is the way to go above? It looks expensive but this is OK for a quality result. Or go with something else at SW.
