Planning on repainting two wooden garage doors, in the condition you see below, to be bright white to match the trim.

Any recommendations on how to prep and paint the doors and what paints and products to use would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Follow the advice on Repainting Front Exterior Wooden Door, since you are having the same problems with the front door. Both have seen better days and the bottom of the garage door is delaminating.
I made a separate post because I thought the advice may be different, since the existing paint on the garage door isn't peeling or flaking off, and I'll be going from a darker color to a white while the front door will stay dark blue.

The bottom of the garage door has definitely seen better days. I think it's probably due for replacement in the future, but painting it white will at least make it look a lot better for the time being.

That's not a wooden door, It's a composite that amounts to ground up cardboard and glue.
Replace the door and never have to deal with it again.
