I think the thinners in the Zero paint ate into the plastic. Try trying on your spare body the Zero primer and paint first. 
 

doing an excellent job on the build as well. You’ve captured some great details!!

Yes Chris,  you were correct.  I realize now I was spraying my coats on too thick.   After I stripped & sanded the body, I sprayed Zero Paints grey primer, then about 5-6 thin coasts of the Zero Paints Lime Green with positive results.  

Will do a very light sanding with 4000 to get rid of the dust particles then apply the decals. Let it dry over the weekend and then apply the 2K clear with thin coats.

Detailing these seats was a slow & patient process, but I definitely liked the results of the 4-point seatbelt harness. 
Added the two buttons for the Nos 1 & Nos 2 shots !!
 

 

How did you paint the raised lettering on the seats?   I been racking my brain trying for do white letter tires.  Tried everything up to a gel pen!!  My hands not really steady.   Thanks.

The “Sparco” lettering on the top of the seat is actually a decal. 
* FYI - Did you know you can also buy decals of different tire manufacturers? ie: Goodyear, Michelin, Toyo, etc.  You need to sand off the raised lettering on the rubber tire, then apply the decal and finish off with a coat of matte or semi-gloss.
