Repainting Lima HST car

Just tried repainting an old Lima HST power car using yellow spray paint and it isn't sticking to the surface very well.

I sanded it down and made sure it wasn't greasy and only put a thin spray of paint on. I've already painted 3 Hornby coaches in this way and not had any problems.

Anyone managed to repaint one of these and if so how did you manage it?!

Have you primed the bodyshell first? If not, I'd recommend giving it a light going over with white car primer.
