Acrylic Paint on Fiberglass Door

Carlina asked 10 years ago

I painted my fiberglass door with acrylic paint, giving it more than on coat. With the super hot temperatures, the paint bubbled in different places. The paint store recommended I sand over the areas affected, then paint the door with an oil based paint as a primer. Wait at least 24 hours then paint it with the acrylic paint once again.

Could you advise me if this is what needs to be done?

What brand of Paint did you use? Not very good I suspect… and did you PRIME the door first? No, I suspect… so now, sand it down to a relatively smooth paint surface… prime it with a Pigmented Shellac Sealer Primer (or if an exterior door, use an oil base exterior stain sealer)… then use a better brand of paint for the topcoat…
