Painting a Fiberglass Entry Door
 
What is the best primer and paint for painting a fiberglass entry door?

Is it covered by a storm door? Is it new or painted now? Is the paint for the interior or exterior surface?

It is a new non-primed entry door. The paint would be for the exterior surface.

One of the toughest paints I've ever used on doors, boat top decks, fiberglass coloums is this.

Expencive but may be the last time you ever have to paint it.
I've painted top side deck on boats and years later it still looked like new.

If this door is in direct sun do not paint it a dark color!
