How can you tell if existing paint is oil or latex?
Try a product called Goo Off
(carried at most hardware and automotive stores). If the paint gets gummy, the paint is latex; if it just looks cleaner, it is oil based paint. You can put latex paint over oil based paint, but oil based paint will not stick to latex paint.
You can also use lacquer thinner or fingernail polish remover.
