    Sounds like the primer slipping through. Paint too thin, or not enough put on.

    Some good Carnauba wax might help keep it black. When you say polish, I think of polishing compound. Wax shouldn't wash off after some rain. My choice of wax is Meguires Gold Class with polymers (whatever they are).
