What kind of clear coat is that on floating Rapalas? I have found only 1 primer to stick to it and its $12 a can and a pain in the backside to use, plus its nasty stuff. The clear they use almost feals "oily".  Even with sanding most paints dont want to stick. All the plastic Rapalas are fine as they have a different clear coat.
