Painting New Hinges???

Ok how do you guys prep your new hinges to paint them? I am having a problem specifically with the rear hinges. We cleaned them first with lacquer thinner, and then we cleaned them really good with starter fluid. Then we primed them and then we painted them. The primer did not stick properly though. Any ideas anyone?

Did you rough them up before priming them?

I roughed mine up, then used TSP to clean them off. I then applied a primer specific for galvanized metal amd then applied some flat black. It worked out well and seems to be holding up.

Not just any primer, "Self Etching Primer" works best. I did rough them up first, then primer.

Yes, sorry it was self etching primer. I did mine in Sept, and we've had a heck of a winter with lots of snow which means lots of salt and moisture, and they are not showing any signs of surface rust. I had bought some non-LR hinges in the summer, put them on without painting and they started rusting in about a week.

When I did the hinges on my D90 I thought I did a good job of roughing them up and cleaning/priming, but the paint isn't holding up well either.
