help! eastwood urethane flatz paint

Hello my names Jaz im having a few problems with eastwood urethane paint
I feel its more of mistakes i made. Im still new to painting and i took the challange of painting my father truck, of course at my own expense. I wanted to learn and he allowed me to use his truck as my canvas

Mistake 1: painted while it got kinda cold. it was between 65-75degs when i started yet it droped alot withen a few hours, as the paint was still cureing i saw condensation build up on some parts. it seems the paint on the roof looks to be lifted or has water spots, the paint turned kind of frosted/whiteish. hes a bad example of it sorry for not offering a clear picture

Mistake 2: i didnt know much about the gun and it took a crap on me,. it worked fine then started to sputter? im not sure what to call it. Was working fine then the air was there, stoped came back and again stop. i didnt notice at 1st not sure why it was very noticeable.. Heres a picture

mistake 3: listening to a local paint supplier. I purchased a quart of dupont 7704s urethane primer to cover a few spots of body putty, they told me it didnt need to be sanded if painted withen 18-24 hours, i had the idea to sand but took their word, dumb move! anyhow i only layed one coat of base on and it feels dusty in the spot where primer was layed. Reason for one coat was the gun mistake i figgured id fix everything before i wasted paint

id like to know what can be done. i was thinking of maybe a wet sand of 400 or 600 grit to get everything nice and flat to start over. then i was thinking maybe i should sand to the primer? im not 100% so i lay my trust in this trusty website. i also purchased a DeVilbiss startingline kit.

Also any other info you guy feel i need PLEASE FEEL FREE to pass the knowledge. i understand im a noob and wouldnt mind or take criticism as a bad thing, we learn from our mistakes and i know this for a fact.

Sorry for any mistakes or errors and spelling, even if i dont make sense but im at work and had to rewrite this since it deleted the 1st time.

Also dont mind the fender i didnt forget to paint were just getting new ones.
