Plastic embedded Immunohistochemsty

I am trying to immunostain retinal tissue that has been embedded in a plastic 
and then sectioned at 3-6um.  I have tried both JB-4 and Immunobed versions of 
glycol methacrylate and I have not gotten any immunoreactivity.  I know the 
antigen sites are present prior to embedding.  

Does anyone have any helpful hints on staining plastic embedded tissue?
