Strip the primer off. Krylon wrinkle will not wrinkle on a primed surface.
I think that info is on the can in super tiny letters right next to the Spanish, German, Italian and Boswanan ( Nothern dialect) translations.
I ran into that problem with a nicely primed rack panel and ended up with a nicely painted glossy black panel.
Stripped off the paint and started again with no primer. Worked great.
Your radio is looking real good !
