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.
I won't be using the Krylon as a primer…I use actual primer for that. "Fish eye" is caused by improper surface preparation and contaminants getting into the finish before it fully cures.

Thanks for the tip on the Rustoleum "Old Caterpillar Yellow".
