As far as a filter, I have an old water/debris filter that has a belt clip on it. My air hose plugs onto that and the outlet side has a 5' hose to my gun. I just clip to my belt on my backside and spray away. No other filters/seperators and so far so good.

This is my other truck, painted 2 years ago. 400 wet sand on orig paint, then shot in my garage. (door was open and evap cooler going. No clear, just color.)
