    Painting the outside windows again and would like to know what others find a good paint to use. The last time they were painted l used dulex flexible undercoat and gloss but l thought it was hard to paint with, to thick and not running freely through the brush. Since it's got a gloss finish on it already does it need a good rub down before applying a undercoat this time and what about water based exterior paints any good ones l could try.....

    Thanks for replying billyo, but what l meant to say was any good water based undercoats l could use and a good solvent based gloss. It would be ok with water based undercoat and solvent based gloss wound'nt it. Just need some paints recommended to go on...
