it would stick without primer, but not that good, just go ahead and sand it and run a few coats of primer, the finished product will be better.

ALWAYS sand cured paint before applying something over it. If the paint is sound you don't need primer. If it's enamel you'd best wait a month before recoating or it could blister and lift on you. Laquer or urethane will be OK.

well, i would sand with maybe a 150-220 grit, nothing to rough to damage the door, but something that will give the paint something to stick to.

Duplicolor makes an "adhesion promoter" I think that doesnt require sanding at all. It was made for painting vinyl and plastice like most car interiors.

are you spray painting the doors or are you using a spray gun? because if you are looking for great quallity i would sand the door spray 2 good coats of primer and then use a paint made for the surface you are painting.

The best way to repaint that would be to sand off all the paint and start over, primer and paint.

sand with 600 till all dullness is gone. then spray the color if ur sset on not doing it the correct way fully.
