Painting a new steel exterior door
I have never trusted factory primers on things like new steel doors and always put a nice coat of something I trusted on them first. Not much you can do now though but add another finish coat. Two coats of finish is the industry standard you will hear some of us preach. The first coat might cover color wise but you can only build up the needed paint film thickness with a second coat. There is no such thing as one coat coverage or primer and paint in the same can.
You are using real paint store and not some crappy box store paint right?
