    probably moisture or a reaction with the material below. Did you use a decent coat of primer?

    I use fusion as well is it Krylon Fusion?.

    Make sure to use primer and don't use heavy coats, very light coats.

    The people at the hardware store told me the same thing, that you dont need primer well that's BS.

    Without primer I found that the paint can chip off easily if hit by something. The paint has been on my accessory parts for over a year now. Being in Canada it has seen from -30 to +30 temperature variances and holds up well.

    I had to sand, primer and repaint everything so far no chips after that process.

    Also, had some pitting but that was because I was rushing it a bit and the paint got too thick on one small area. Let dry, sand and re-paint that area.

    zip is correct. Primer should be applied. Also you need to make sure the parts are extremely clean and free of any past Armor All or other dressings. Wipe the parts throughly with denatured alchol or rubbing alchol. All that to dry then appply paint and try not to touch any of the surface to be painted with your bare hands after you clean it. Oils from your skin can cause fish eyes also.

    Thin light coats and make sure the paint flashes inbetween coats. Do not rush it and you will have a very nice finish.

    You must have dissimilar materials underneath. If it was painted and you sanded the paint off in one area and not another that can happen. Let it dry for a few days, sand it very lightly with 500-600 (without sanding through!!), and respray. That should take care of it. What you will be doing is using this coat of paint as the primer.
