2 Pack Paint Over Single

I`m about to refinish the name boards either side of the FB.
The boat name is painted in bright yellow gloss oil paint, in recessed letters carved into the boards. I have used Cetol gloss over the whole board, letters included. Looks good freshly done.
Can I replace the Cetol with 2 pack clear varnish, including putting it over the single pack yellow letters, or will that end badly?
I`ve friends who use actual gold leaf for the letters instead of paint on their GB52, I`m not going that way.

Most two part varnishes are not happy going over one part finishes. Although it can be done with Awlgrip if you use the right products from the get go.
