Did you use a wash primer or something like DP90?

PPG makes a "wash primer" for aluminum that is a very thin substrate that I would normally use on the clean aluminum and then I would use the correct color coded DP primer before applying the paint.

I just don't recall what the topcoat methods are for the wash primer and if you can apply a topcoat directly over it...which I know you can do with the DP products.
