I would say go auto first then auto body- there seems to be a big demand around here for mechanics- more than bodymen... and if you wait a little, the cars will be more plastic and you will just have to learn how to feed the tube into the gun and pull to replace the panel... glad there are not plastic powerstrokes yet...
