Default First time painting rc body...advice?

So I tried painting up a Jconcepts f250 body fluorescent yellow(Tamiya ps paints )...it doesn't look good. I scuffed body with scotch Brite, cleaned with dish soap, and dried lint free cloth.

Painted an extremely light coat of the flo yellow(just enough to seal masking tape). Then 3 more light coats of flo yellow. Used hair dryer and 20 minutes between each coat.

I let it sit over night and today I did 2 light coats of white and ran out of paint. As you can tell from pics the white is spotty. I probably shouldve done one more cost of the yellow with full coverage.

Do you think it'll look okay if I back it with more white, or should I just start over and take paint off ? I tested on scrap piece and got the exact look I wanted before painting body.

I can't see your pictures but I'm pretty sure you will be okay once you add more white to finish it off.

I've had issues with using old spray cans where it just started spitting out paint. I tossed the can and got a new can with the same color code, sprayed over the spitted paint. You might need to spray a tad heavy, but on mine it turned out perfect.
