No question about it. (a) quick piece of sandpaper, ...(b) caulk the case, ....(c) spray or roll 2 coats of whatever you like. Done. Priming pre-primed doors makes absolutely zero sense unless it's for color achievement ....ie deep red or something. Even most reds use gray primers nowadays.

They leave them frames outside. They get bangs up and rained on and rust. Oil kills that but we rarely get to use it anymore. I'd like to see it come back. The oil. Doubt it though.
Still a good bit of industrial enamel being thrown on them around here, unless it's a hospital and certain fit outs.

I used to work for a company here (one of the biggest in town) and everything got 2 coats of ICI`s ultra. Even hollow core doors and frames. We never had a problem with it adhering to the metal.

I use Lifemaster most of the time on mine. Never had a problem.

I used pitt glaze on steel stringers. It dried fast and was finger nail scratch test resistant after a few hours. It leveled out like an oil when brushed. Great product.

How does breakthrough spray? Hvlp? Reason I ask is I have an estimate tomorrow to paint a bunch of large metal doors at a fire department. These are the large garage doors.

Big doors like what your talking about I would use an airless.

I haven't had the pleasure of using breakthrough yet though so as to the spray ability through an airless I'm not sure of.

Breakthrough sprays nice. I would just use an airless. Strain it first as some cans can get a bit chunky. I used 150 gal this January. I only could get it in singles so mixing was a PITA. Nice product that's meant to be sprayed or brushed.

i vote Pitt-Tech. Or really what ever company that you buy paint from, just get there DTM lol

Pitt-Tech comes in all sheens and is dry to touch in 15 min. You can paint your door and 20 min later coat it again now its done. Win Win in my books.
