Plastic primer is clear and will do exactly what you need to make the laquer stick.

lots of paint dont like sticking to ally that is why etch prime is a must (no good for clear)

rule is if its a soft metal paint will not like sticking to it

I like that look, like old airplanes, often wondered how they stop it from coroding. Once laquered any chip or scratch will allow water under the laquer and corosion that wont be easy to repair.

Look at the damage on water based paint when the laquer is chipped and water gets in,question answered.

It shouldn't if it is prepared properly. Water based paint is no different in that respect to solvent based.
