seperator/filter, regulator. a reg at the gun is wise.
are ya lookin to go cheap? if so, build a water seperator. i cant find a pic of mine, but heres a pic to go off of

this isnt something to use pex pipe on- youre going to want copper to help cool the air and condense it.
after that,this or something similar

if ya want to spend some $$$$ then something similar to this

althouth ill say that with my copper pipe seperator and devilbiss filter/ regulator, over about 20 vehicles painted, a dozen sets of mc tins,tons of woodworking projects, and lots of odds and ends people would bring to me to paint, i havent ever had a moisture problem.

one note:
its wise to have an airhose dedicated to spraying.

I had already planned to run my line like the picture you posted. I also plan on buying a dedicated hose for spraying. But I can not afford a $200+ dollar filter+regulator. I am planning to order a QualSpray HVLP gun and one of their air line filters. Their filter is $50. I am also planning to use a regulator from Lowes at the compressor and on my gun. Unless you can give me any reason not to use those? Would I need anything else?
