There are plenty. You'll need to rub it down. Use a lower grit sandpaper, like 80 or 60 first to clear the old coating off. Then a higher grit, 120-180 to smooth it off. Wipe it down with a damp cloth after to remove excess dust.
I'd be inclined to use an outdoor oil based finish like Osmo. They'll do specific outdoor types. It will need two coats, 24 hours apart. Apply with a brush sparingly and rub it in with an e-cloth to remove any excess.

Yes, but it makes me very sweaty and isn't very flattering.

Thanks.. That is brilliant.

I will have a look for a local supplier.

Also, it's expensive, so only buy 0.75l as it's enough to coat the door twice

I did see the link, and it has a local supplier in the next town over.

I really need to get it refitted as the frame has warped. That is outside my skill set..

I replaced the outside tap! That's two taps this year!

It's seeping a bit so I'll redo it with an extra metre of PTFE at the weekend before deciding whether or not to buy a new elbow as well - it's made tricky by being tapped directly off the mains inlet just after the stopcock so if I screw it up there's no water at all, except what's in the loft header. With the mouse skeletons. So not really potable.
