I never have cleaned the primer coat with alcohol, just water rinse. Maybe your problem? Did you use the plastic adhessive promoter?

Here the thread I used, it's well written and I use this process for both interior and exterior parts. Hope this helps!

I used krylon fusion, bonds well to plastics. Didn't use any alcohol though, try more coats but lighter coats, i had some adherence issues when spraying on to heavy
