I cleaned the box with a rag and alchol

Start over. Remove all paint by scraping, sanding. Rub down with green scrubby pad and ACETONE. Much more effective at removing contaminants. Prime with Rustoleum metal primer ... be sure to let it fully cure. Then re-apply paint in multiple lights coats. If you want the best finish, pre-heat the can in hot (not boiling) water.
