What you will need:

Painting glossy, impermeable surfaces requires a primer with exceptional adhesion. Zinsser's B-I-N® Primer Sealer is exactly that!  

1
Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from anything that will interfere with the adhesion of the materials to be applied. Remove loose and failing material by scraping or brushing with a stiff bristle brush to a sound edge. Feather sound edges with a fine grade abrasive paper. Prior to painting, the moisture content should not exceed 18%. Remove all dust. Remove all visible signs of organic growth and treat the areas with Blackfriar Anti-Mould Solution in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

In areas with sound paint wash with hot water and liquid detergent solution to remove any contaminants, frequently changing the water. Remove any grease from the surface with methylated spirit, frequently changing the cloths. Allow to dry. Fill any cracks and small surface defects with Ready Patch® or Ready Patch® Lite as appropriate in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow to dry. Rub down with a fine grade abrasive paper. Remove all dust.
