    Going to get as close to JD green as I can find without driving 25 miles for a can of paint

    Can't help ya, all we got over here is Ford Blue and International Red.
    But Krylon's probably got something close at Walmart...

    Maybe a white spray over the primer, then the yellow? Would be more bright yellow that way.

    Just brainstorming up here in 'way too cold to paint' country. ;)

    Been teetering on to cold to paint here too. Was out of town shopping with the family today and picked up a can of Krylon JD yellow, So I'm going to sand and repaint the yellow parts

    Yellow never covers very well, especially gloss yellow. A wet coat of the gloss tends to pull away from edges letting the base color show through. As it stands you could try applying a couple of thin tack coats of the yellow over the current paint. Spray it from a distance so the paint goes on nearly dry. Once you have reasonable coverage with the tack coats hit it with a heavier coat to get the gloss finish you want.

    Went over it with the Krylon and it covered all the edges with no problem
