Need to know the reason. Sanding it off is easy, but prepping for paint takes experience assuming it's on a car. If not, need to know substrait. If you have overspray or paint over your present paint (on a car) abd it's light, try to buff it out with wax and a pad on a drill.

Use the thinner of that spray with a rag.

Use Tremclad spray, mask off the window part.

If you can take the hardware off the door and the door right off the frame. If you can't then use masking tape and tape all the hardware. Door knobs can be taken right off (2 screws on each side.) If there is existing paint on the door and it looks OK and is the same type of paint you are planning on using (oil on oil or latex on latex ... water based paint) then you don't need to sand. If the door is in bad shape with a few little holes, heavy scratches, etc., then it's best to give the door a good sanding first and then be sure you wash off the dust with soapy water and it's dry if you are using oil based paint (you don't have to worry about the door being damp if you are using latex paint.)

Well you get your brush you dip it in the paint and then you stroke up and down with the brush on the door!

It depends on the door size interior/exterior or kitchen cabinet and also what is on it, paint or varnish. With those questions in mind, to strip an interior door at our shop costs about $200 to strip off paint and about $400 more if we sand stain and finish.

If you are going to repaint then all you have to do is "buff it up" so you take the shine off the old paint. If it's a wood door and you want it right down to the wood then you are going to have to use an electric sander (fine grit sandpaper) and do the major part of it and then hand sand (fine grit) any grooves the door may have. Seal it and stain it.

It would be unusual to get lead poisoning from touching a door knob. In theory, if the door knob had been painted with a paint that contains lead, and if the paint was now flaking off and gets onto your hand, and if you fail to wash your hands before eating, and you get flakes of lead based paint into your food and eat it, then yes, you could get lead poisoning.

yes you can. you just have to make sure to paint only the door. and if there is any paint on it already you may need to sand it down first.

first you'll have to dig into the inside of the door and pull all the wiring connections apart and pull out the wires, then you'll possibly have to pull off the fender to get to the door hinge bolts then just pull off the door. be careful not to scratch your paint because the door is pretty heavy

you first take off the nails and the hindges that hangs your door by the wall.. then you get big brushes and the colour of the paint that you want to change the door into...then you paint. After that, keep it dry for about an hour, put the liquid for coating (lamination) on, and they you dry it. then it's done!

Yes, you can indeed paint the interior of a front door. It is best to sand the door and then use a primer before painting it in the desired color.

Fiberglass won't take stain. You need to get all the flaking paint off, scuff the surface and then paint with an enamel type paint. A yacht supply store will set you up.

You can paint a garage door with a roller if the door is perfectly flat, or if your roller can get into any corrugation or around any molding that is incorporated into the door. Usually a smaller cigar type roller will do the job. If you apply the paint to the door while it is cool and out of the sun, you should have no problem getting a fairly smooth finish.
