Tell us what you did before applying the primer. Did you do any sanding on the old paint, and what kind of primer did you use?

It almost looks like the gun was spitting the primer in some spots instead of atomizing it. You should list all the products you used, gun tip size & prep before priming to get the best answer. If the primer is a 2k high build I & you prepped the surface correctly before applying it I would guide coat, then block it with 220 then fill any low spots & primer then block again

I don't see the cracks. I see poor prep and sanding along with trash prob from uncleanliness and lack of use concerning a tack rag...jus sayin.....what does anyone else see?

Never argue with an idiot, he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
