I'm sorry to bearer of bad news but 10 gallons added on is not going to give you enough holding capacity to paint a car, the smallest amount of holding capacity for painting a car is around 60 gallons (and I think that's pushing it, the minimum I prefer is 80 gallons)...The advertised CFM out put is 9 CFM...your average paint gun will take 1 1/2 times that much CFM or, in short...your compressor won't produce enough CFM to keep up with a paint gun let alone the storage capacity required so your compressor isn't running the whole time your painting.
