On the new repro doors i just bought, they sprayed it with a black shipping paint.... in order to paint over this do i need to strip the paint (chemically or manually) or can i just prime it and paint over it

'66 coupe resto in progress... IT NEVER ENDS

There are two different coatings that it could have. It would be best to call the place where you got the doors and ask for a customer service number to the manufacturer. I once painted over the black finish on a Honda hood. The first rainstorm stripped the paint and black finish right off the car.

If you want to play it safe, chemically remove the coating. But that's a lot of work. I would try to contact the manufacturer.

JUST SCRUFF IT UP WITH A SCOTCH PAD, THEN PUT A PRIMER SURFACER ON IT, SAND SMOOTH, THEN PAINT

The object here is to remove all the "shiny" spots. Especially on the edges and contours.
A dual action sander works best here as doing it properly by hand could take you upwards of an hour. You don't need to remove all evidence of black, then clean with wax & grease remover, prime and so forth as Jerry stated.

The painters I've used have never wanted to paint over someone elses finish and have always remove the primer


Good luck
