Well, I'm not sure if these parts are textured plastic, or if they are already smooth & have been painted in production.
If they are textured plastic, they will need sanded before any painting can commence. If you want a smooth finish.
If already smooth, then the lacquer should go on smoothly.
A thought occured to me this morning - I presume you've used a primer? Paint normally contains cellulose, which will react with any plastic it comes into contact with - and would give a similar symptom to what you experienced.
Hope that helps,
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
