By the looks of the compressor, you don't have a large enough holding tank to paint a car...how many CFM are they advertising when the compressor is running. The reason you may be getting moisture is because the holding tanks are so small that the compressor is constantly running and developing heat...the heat when cooling will cause the moisture to condense and turning into water. If you paint your car with that compressor, I don't know of any desiccant dryer that would keep up with removing the moisture, let alone the compressor keeping up with the air supply needed to paint.
