Okay, make sure that the body is CLEAN before you paint. Make sure to scuff it up a bit with some scotchbrite pad/steel wool, to make it more abrasive. Also, make a lot of thin coats, instead of one big one. It also helps to heat the cans a bit in some warm water to make the paint spray morw evenly.

You could also back it with spray on truck bed liner.

The most important thing you can do to prevent paint from shipping is to make sure that you are using the correct paint. There are many different paints just make sure you get one that's designed to work with lexan.
