ouch ya I could have told you that. the plastic is to new and fresh so its trying to breath through the paint. Your getting a yellow bleed through the paint right?

only 3 options really

1.) 6 coats of paint to cover the bleed.

2.) paint none sanded (use scuff pads instead) numbers will stil be visible though

3.) sand, primer, blocksand, primer prep, paint

Hope that helps
