I did everything you mentioned though, I used alcohol to clean them after sanding. Let Dry. Temperature was about 60 F or so, and I was definitely atleast 8-12 inches away. Shook the can for a while too before spraying.

Followed it all to the T, just didn't work out.

I did notice my can wasn't sealed shut so I wonder if it had been used and then returned for the very problem I was having... Who knows, it is fine for now, may try to clean it up sometime in the future and change out the bulb for an LED. Live and learn..
That 60F could make all the difference just so you know. Ideally, you should put the can in some warm water and get the can up to temp. They are really sensitive to cold temps, and even when apply to cold materials (under 70F).
