I never use lacquer-based paints, because of their tendency to "fish eye". Nor do I ever use "all in one" products, as you've linked. I believe in products specific for their purpose. If it's going to be applied to anything with a chance of oily residue, Krylon is guaranteed to "fish eye", even if you pre-clean with lacquer thinner.

BTW, Rustoleum has a "farm equipment" line and their Old Caterpillar Yellow is a perfect match for Hustler. I painted my flex forks with it. They offer an Allis Chalmers Orange and don't know if that'd match your Scag.
