Three coats of lacquer should be easily enough to achieve a deep gloss finish.
Clear lacquer (or high gloss finishes) are sensitive towards humid or damp conditions, and will absorb moisture on drying. This will be exaggerated if heavy coats are applied.
To rectify (ensure the existing paint is fully dry), lightly flat with 1200 grade wet & dry paper and overcoat with a further 2 to 3 light coats of lacquer allowing at least 15 minutes between coats. Ensure the ambient conditions are dry and relatively warm, i.e.15 deg C+.
standard lacquer should be OK for this application.
Black is "plasti-kote" (3-4 coats) upto 30 mins between each coat. left overnight before lacquer
Thin coats each time
never wrinkled going from primer to black but it does from black to lacquer
If its another brand of paint it may not be compatible, particularly if its an alkyd of some type.
How many coats of primer and black have been used?
How long was left between each coat?
If lots of very thick coats have been applied it could be a case of solvent entrapment but this tends to cause pin-holing rather than wrinkling.
