Are you painting it with metal cast and using engine enamel clear over it or what?
Thier .PDF on application tips for metalcast says:

Over Bare Plastic
- Desgrease
- Scuff
- Degrease
- Apply 1-2 light coats of CP199 Adhesion Promoter

Doesn't mention anything about a chrome or metalcast base coat.

I am painting the Turn Signal and light bulb chrome blue (metalcast), the iris shrouds will be gloss black (enamel). Metalcast doesn't have a black and their smoke color looked a bit like graphite on the net from the pics I saw. That is why I am using the engine enamel paint.

As for duplicolors response, I think you're right, they probably thought I was painting the lenses.
If you can't wear it out, burn it off
