Brett, try using a sealer/primer on the body, it sounds like the line is "ghosting" on you, after puttying up the front nose piece of my Nova & primering it, I noticed that the putty lines were showing up thru the primer, now I have never had anything "ghost" on me in over 40+ years of building (also never had a problem painting a different color over bodies molded in red or any other color), but I keep reading about other people having this problem & saying to use a sealer. So I went to my local Lowes & bought a can of BIN sealer/primer, tried it on the nose & the putty lines disappeared. Let me know if this helps you out at all.
