I'm no expert, but that's what I did when I painted my car. I had a craftsman 5 hp 25 gal compressor and borrowed a simmilar one off my brother and linked together like you suggested, they just barely kept up. Because they were both running constantly the air comming out was pretty hot and moister would pass right through my water trap. I ended up solving this by buying a 50' length of that cheap plastic air line, left it coiled up and put it in a 5 gal pail of ice and water. I put this setup between the output of my compressors and my water trap and it solved my problem. My next big purchace for the garage will be a "real" compressor. Good luck!
