After the ELO dried, the old paint came off in flakes

After I finished brushing off the wrinkled, lifted, paint, using my stiff, 1 inch wide, paint brush, some small chips remained, as well as sections of the gloss yellow painted over the gloss white. There is also some surface roughness the paint remover had caused – notably in the area it wrinkled the paint so spectacularly (see previous photo). Multiple applications of ELO and soaking the paint and bare plastic in ELO will leave an unwelcome texture on the plastic. Wet sanding with 400 grit paper smooths out this damage.
