painting trim

I am painting the original metal trim inside our 70 Camaro and getting a bit fustrated too. I tried painting it once and the gloss black just fish eyed bad on me, so today I thought to take it back down to bare metal and primer then repaint gloss black and the primer is getting fish eyes. Any other prep ideas I should try before I break down and buy new pieces (which I honestly cannot afford).

Thanks

Put the primer on in light coats. Sounds to me like you are trying to put it on too thick. Same with the black.

Thanks thats what I think I am doing wrong. I sanded them down with a fine grit and lightly reprimered them and they look so much better. I will try the repaint again but in lighter coats.
