Default Advice for Createx adhesion on lexan

I've tried a few test strips and I am fairly happy with the paint, I can bend the lexan and mask it with no problem, but it does scratch off easier than I'd like. I tried putting down clear Autoborne Sealer first but that made no difference. I have a piece that I painted three weeks ago and that comes off just as easy as the one I did today. I compared the Createx paint to a pre painted FTX bodyshell, and I'd say that the pre painted shell is twice as tough on scratches. Could it be that I'm putting it on too thick and not giving it chance to cure properly? I don't think I am but maybe Createx needs a very thin coat, every time I use Tamiya lexan paint in a spray can I just chuck it on and go.
