I would use primr and sand each layer with 2400 grit then same with colour then a coat of clear laquer to get the effect but that's the way that I would of done it

Yeh get the paint off and start again.

Nice three or four layers of primer, then four coats of paint, and seven coats of lacquer, that's what I have done with anything I paint on interiors.

I once made a grill using the same technique;

I have also painted parts in a prelude, just to give you the idea of what it looks like with so much lacquer;
