Default Another " Latex over oil " question

I went and looked at a job today ( I know it's Labor Day . It's the only day I was available for the next 3 weeks ) . The HO wants a entire interior repaint . so here is the PIA part . The previous owner had all wood work in the house including kitchen cabinets painted and whoever painted used a flat latex over all the oil painted trim ( I did the ole alcohol rub trick ) . The HO has like 4 little ones running around and there is chipped latex from the floors up 3 feet and around door knobs , drawer pulls etc .

Here was my plan of attack . Sand all the peeling latex flush on the door casings , prime with a oil based primer and 2 coats of Pro Classic alkyd modified . And on the kitchen cabinets sand all the latex off and paint with the above oil and Pro Classic . My question is do I really need to sand off the latex on the wood work including a simple crown molding to achive a good bond with the primer .

Have you done a lead test on the oil-base yet? If not you should start there first before doing anything in there especially with kids in house. If not lead then try to remove as much as possible, prime with oil primer, then top coat. I prefer Advance more than Pro-classic because pro-classic ropes like hell if you try to get back into it. Advance lays flatter faster and you can get back into it for touch-ups and not have any problems.

I was beginning to think i was the only person to experience this, what with all the local painters raving about Proclassic. I was beginning to think i was going crazy.

I am going to be spraying the Pro Classic so roping isn't a issue . And when I have brushed it I have found that adding a little flotrol or water works well .
