Need Primer?
 
I will be painting some bi-fold doors and wondering if I were to use Solo from SW will I need primer to go over the already oil base paint there now? The reason I'm painting them is because they have yellowed over the years. Thanks

Yes, definitely. A bonding primer.

SW said to use Pro Block which is an oil base. Would you guys use that? I thought we were getting away from oil. Thanks

Use this: Sticks to anything, even glass and, although the smell is strong, it is latex based and much easier to work with

Thanks...it's kinda confusing because when you call the paint store they tell you different things. One says go with Multipurpose Oil another person says Pro Block Oil which I can't find on the Web site and another says just use Pro Classic alkyd enamel and forget the primer. Would that finish look as good as Solo? Thanks for the tips.

The finish would look fine, but if it is white, then it will yellow if you use oil. Plus you have the lingering oil odor. I would prime with the 123 and use the Solo or any other quality finish coat

Comes in either oil or water based.

What type of finish is currently on the doors? semigloss or gloss should be sanded first IMHO. this will help the primer adhere to the paint.

Bi-fold with louvres? I don't see any reason to prime them. Already painted with a good oil paint? Sanding will be necessary either way. Just sand them and use a good top coat. Louvres are such a pain to begin with, why go through the extra step if you don't have to?

If you remove them paint regular way then turn them upside down to finish they are easier to paint.
