Air brush/Automotive Paint

Has anyone used automotive paint in their air brush? I have some extremely
minor touch-up on my car, and the body shops want quite a bit to fix it (it's a
I'm rather proficient with my air brush and blending paint into an older
finish, so I'd like to use my air brush on this. I would be using the GM
touch-up paint. I definately do not want to damage the air brush, however.
If this is possible, how it the paint thinned and the brush cleaned?
Forgive me for being a bit off topic. This is the only group I would trust
with this question.
Thank you.

Sure, lotsa folks paint model cars with full size paint to have an authentic color. Read the label contents and figure out which thinner/reducer you'll be needing and go at it. You may need to do some preparatory sanding but other than that it should be painless. hth

I know of a guy that used nothing but automotive paints on his models and they turned out beautiful.
He used lacquers but I would think automotive enamels would work as well. Juts make sure it's thinned properly.
Best of luck.
