Congrats on finding this deal and adapting it to your needs. I think this type of Pex pipe is alot like what they use in those RapidAir systems.

As far as the drip legs or condensation traps are concerned—I purchased an IR GarageMate about a year ago and sweat together some copper tubing to connect it to a hose reel mounted on the ceiling. I installed a drip leg, but I have never seen any moisture come out of the drip leg when I open the valve. I do see a little moisture come out of the tank drain when I drain it. I live in MD so maybe it’s not humid enough here or maybe it has something to do with the size of my air compressor (20 gallon). If I ever try spray painting with this compressor I will consider getting a filter or moisture trap.
