Prep in the same manner you would anything else you're going to paint. Wash the door with a light TSP solution, rinse, allow to dry, prime with suitable primer, and paint to color of choice. :)

Re: Exterior fiberglass door

We installed a fiberglass door in March 2006. Then we took the door off and painted it later. Unfortunately we made the mistake of painting it outside in the sun and the paint beaded up and became textured because the door was warm.

So this year we would like to fix it. My questions are how do we take the old paint off of the door? Was Exterior Latex the correct paint to use? We used a sprayer, should we use a brush instead?
