    Nice. The Matching Red door looks much better than the plain white.

    Always start at the top,and work down ! Working with red is difficult. best, to cover with a grey color first,then the red,at least two coats!..Looks good and you saved money!

    The challenge was not letting the door get too warm, or too cool....so rolling it up helped keep the temp I needed to get the paint to do it's thing....I THINK! lol
