Hello luismedardo!

 

The exterior of mobile homes is commonly constructed of light-weight aluminum or fiberglass panels.

 

Either of these materials can be primed with Zinsser 123 ... an exterior rated primer that can be tinted and will make a strong base for your paint.

 

Ask your Paint Associate to tint the primer to be similar to the new color you want to paint.

 

Use TSP and a scrub brush to clean and prep the surface for painting.

 

Rinse thoroughly and allow to air-dry.

 

Prime ... you can spray, brush or roll.

 

Allow your primer to dry and paint two coats of exterior rated paint in flat, satin, or semi-gloss sheen.

 

NOTE:

You will find that painters' tape and plastic come in handy when protecting surfaces you do not wish to paint.
