Wish to paint over a oil base paint with a latex paint. Do I need to use a primer on
the oil base paint? Exterior painting.

Know the answer or have a comment? Post it here!

Best place to ask is at a paint store.

Every brand has different recommendations written on their paint cans regarding application over different materials. If you follow recommendations then you have some recourse if it fails.
I have a brand that I prefer and they advise a deglosser over oil base prior to latex.
