Default Painting Fiberglass Door

Going to painting a smooth fiberglass entry door and wanted to try a BM product, rather than SW. Looking to try their best option for workability and finish quality.



Door is going to be red with white trim. Beige on the interior side. What BM products is your fave in the northeast? Also, any sheen considerations, regarding how they compare to SW?

Aura.
It comes in a red base, the few times I've used it I didn't have any issues, and I like to use a satin, just bedside there is less possible flashing

I was going to try aura on my next high end repaint job, but nobody wanted to spend the money for it yet.

So the aura levels out well? How is open time in the July heat?

About as good as good as any other paint. Aura is a little tricky to work with at first (back brushing, etc). Maybe try it out at home first

Ben soft gloss on doors is just as good all day long as regal select or aura it's your money...

Use the ben moore extender with it if you going to use it on doors in July heat. The aura does not have much open time at all. About the same open time as duration exterior on July hot days to give you a sherwin analogy.
