    I had the same issue a week or so ago when I went to tint mine, I just sanded it back down all the way and finished with a wetsand with some 2k grit paper. Try using some adhesion promoter and apply lighter coats of the tint. Also make sure it isn't too hot or humid outside, and that it isn't drying in direct sunlight.

    looks like what happened to my headlights when i tried tinting them. your going to have to take it all the way back down to the plastic to get rid of the cracks because there going to show no matter what you do unless you sand past them. next use adhesion promoter like stated before and make sure to clean the lense with dawn soap or any grease removing soap to insure you get all contamonites out of the lense. then just lightly add coats of paint
