what paints are you using? do you seal the paint when your done. and not just with white or black backer but with a clearcoat sealer? what do you clean your bodies with?

If I had to guess, you might be spraying the paint on way too heavy. It isn't hard to put a little too much paint on at a time, and in the first few coats try to keep the spray you put on the body more of a mist not a coat and things should be better.

Now if it was just cracking then that means it stays on the body but where ever the paint pooled up it cracks due to the way it drys.
