I've used activator in my base and I dont think that is your problem. Berry says 1 oz per thinned qt will help your base become stronger. Done it many times. Seeing as how the base is peeling from the primer I would say either you didnt get it clean enough or you didn't get it sanded enough. I always sand my primer with 320 or 400 and thats it. no 600 or finer. Just did a black hood and no sand marks.
