    I have a new replacement fiberglass (Pella) front door. I am painting it prior to installation. I have primed it with Kilz Original (interior) by mistake. Obviously the inward side of the door will be OK, but am I screwed on the outside. I planed on putting two to three coats of a quality (haven't bought it yet) topcoat on the exterior.

    Will the exterior topcoat be OK with the interior primer underneath it?

    Thanks
    Greg

    Not that you have much of choice. I'd be careful if you decide to remove it chemically as the fiberglass may not react well.

    I would contact the manufacturer of the paint you applied, and see what they recommend you do from there. I'm sure there is contact information on the can.
    Tell us what happens, as it may help others.:)
