Compressor and gun

I'm trying to get set-up to do some primer spot painting. I've done a bunch or research and I am now totally and thoroughly confused. I want to use a 2k epoxy primer which I also know nothing about. I bought a compressor:

And I'm looking at this gun. Does the gun look like it will do what I want to do which is spray fairly small areas of bare maetal with 2k epoxy primer. Will this gun allow me to paint larger areas or even the whole car?
Feed Type: Gravity
Nozzle Size: 1.5 mm
Op. Pressure: 10 - 45 PSI
Pattern Width: 3-10 in.
Air Consumption: 3.0 - 3.9 CFM
Cup Type: Metal
Cup Capacity: 1000cc

That gun/compressor combo will work just fine for what you have in mind just add the water separator/regulator they have on sale now along with that genuine Goodyear hose also on sale and you will be all set

oldred,
Thanks for the vote of confidence! Now all I gotta do I figure out what primer to use. I went to an automotive paint store yesterday, but they were a bunch of jerks and pretty much just dismissed me because I needed help. STAY AWAY from Automotive Finishes in Hawthorne!!
I bought the air filter yestarday but didn't see the hose. Maybe I'll go on line and find it.

Thanks again!!
