best paint gun for my application

well i always wanted to get into painting my own car because id always find mistakes when i took my car to a shop

I have a 30 gallon 1hp compressor 120psi (can upgrade if i have to)

im looking for a paint gun to paint my car. The whole car
Ive been researching but I dont want to make a mistake that i will look back at.

I think i should buy a cheap harbor freight gun for primer
and buy a nice gun for clear/base
I have about 200-400 to spend.
Im a beginner but ill be painting alot and practicing.
heres the gun i was looking at
http://www2.shopping.com/xPO-DeVilbi...GUN-MASTER-KIT

would this be a good choice for clear and base or can someone reccomend a different gun that will perform better

The air compressor you have will not do the job at hand you will need a compressor that will give you 11 cfm

Im ok with cheap primer guns if they spray even a cheap gun can cause more work if they dont spray even and create ripples and I havent used a Devilbiss since the 90s so I cant say on the gun
