    I don't do many outside jobs anymore but I've got some old doors and windows to do, all flaking back to the wood and all old oil base. Would usually use aura satin for what would be a good primer to use underneath on the bare bits?

    Or any other suggestions for primer/top coat

    High hide...
    Then onwards

    Don't mind coverstain sometimes then onward with top coat.

    If good aura satin will go on that window as is with good prep...

    I try to stick to paint spec so high hide if nothing will grin through.

    Or look at Tikkurila options I guess.

    Same as @Wayners but you might want to kill those knots on the gate with some aluminium wood primer.

    You could always spot prime the knots with shellac primer. Quick recoat time.

    I used teknos satin on an exterior the other day. Actually found the sheen & application better than BM aura.
