POR15 Application Questions w/Pics

This is my second time using the POR15 products. I have been wanting to ask these questions for a while but never got around to poting the pictures.
Here is a piece that I had snadblasted but decided to us the POR15 stuff anyways.

This picture is to demonstrate what the metal looked like after I use the Marine Clean then the prep and ready product. The Marine clean soaked on the material for 30mins then was rinsed off with water. Then, I sprayed the Prep and Ready and let that soak for 45mins. Rinsed with water and let sit overnight. I did the prep work on night so sitting overnight just ended up happening it is not a requirement. Before painting I used a wet towel to clean the "powdery" surface. I let the parts dry in the sun before painting.

here is a close up of the material after the Prep and Ready has done it's thing:

Does this light oxidation look right? Do you think I used the prep materials correctly?

Both times I have used the POR15 products and the same process described above I get these weird bumps in the paint. It almost looks like "Goosebumps" on your skin.
I applied two coats of paint. The first coat dried for 3-4hrs because the temperature was around 70degrees outside that day. The second coat dried over night. The bumps were not really noticeable at the time I went to apply the second coat.

Does anyone know what these bumps are happening in my paint? Will the bumps not show when I apply the topcoat, which will be POR15 Hardnose?
