Primer not sticking to resin hood

Q: I am working on an Olds 442 collection (1966 through 1972) for a show in Massachusetts next year.
The problem I have is with the 1968 conversion kit, which has a resin hood. I sprayed everything with automotive primer, but when I taped off the hood, the primer did not stick. It’s fine on the body. I’ve painted a lot of cars with O.E.M. paint, and this is the first time I have run into this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
