New Here - Paint Questions...

Well I ran across this site while researching automotive painting and after poking around found this place has a ton of useful information. I will be doing alot of custom work on my car over the next few months and feel like doing the paint work myself. I have done small custom parts and used spray can paint with success in achieving a great finish (required alot of sanding/buffing)

For the bigger projects I plan on doing, i will definitely need a spray gun. After poking around this site i ran across a few options. I would like to get a lower priced gun to start with, and if needed upgrade later. I wanted to get comments on these two guns specifically:

I need to lay down primer, base, and clear so i was thinking the 3 gun kit may better suite my needs.

My second question is regarding body work. I have a spoiler that i want to "mold" into the trunk. What is the best way to do this? it bolts down, so should i just fill the gap with bondo and sand smooth? Should i use some type of adhesive (epoxy?) to permanently mount it?

Any suggestions would be great!
