I started my MM UB last fall the same way. I steam washed it, the used aircraft paint remover followed by steam wash. Then used wire wheel in grinder to get the rest of the paint off. My mistake was when I sprayed the self etching primer. I heated my barn to over 70 degrees for a few hours, and rattle canned the primer. Looked great when I was done. I then worked on my small parts for the rest of the winter and planned to paint when the temps got warm in the spring. The problem I had was although the air temp was over 70 the metal on the tractor never got that warm, and by spring I had rust coming through the primer. I had to wire wheel/ brake clean all of the primer ($$$ lost) back off. I then used self etching primer from a paint gun (much cheaper) then scuffed before paint. My next one will get stripped, primed, painted ( at least the main part of the tractor) when it's warm, or when I can maintain 70 degrees for a couple days to let the cast/ steel to get close to that temp.

Something that comes to mind, may or may not have happened, is a small amount of moisture condensation on the cold metal. A minimal slight fog of condensation, you may or may not have noticed.
