It seems to me like your paint is drying too quick. Is it in a hot area?

You should paint in a cooler area. Drying too quickly can cause the paint to stretch and crack. Either thats the problem or maybe...Is your paint old?

I had the same problem painting the top of my hard drive casing. That was the most unlucky hard drive case I have had. 1st time I painted it a big gust of wind threw it to the ground and scraped it all. The Second time I was tired and made a build up. The third through to the fifth time I got dust specks on it. The final time the paint kept cracking in a few places. But I said fuck that I have wasted enough time, paint and most importantly money. So I cleared it and put it on my xbox. Problem solved... Until it pisses me off that is.
