Touch-up spray bottles?

I am getting my 1990 dakota ready for sale, and have to do some minor rust repair before I put it on the market. I have a pint or so of paint left over from the paint job I had done on it a couple years ago. I don't have access to an air compressor/paint gun set-up, but I have seen those glass bottle sprayers with the propellant on the top (can is part of the lid). Will that work? Where can I find one? I am not looking for perfection; the areas are small and won't be hard to paint.

I look forward to your comments---thanks!

paint cans

I know home depot carries the setup you are talking about. Check out harbor freight, they have a refillable can that you can just about pressurize with a bike pump. Bought one not too long ago, works ok for laying polyurethane on wood, but you have to thin the daylights out of the stuff.

They are called preval sprayers. You can find them if you look around, or the body supply shop near you may even carry them. They will spray, but leave a little bit of a textured, orange peel finish. But for a small touchup or something should work, and the nice thing is you could spray some activated paint through it you won't be able to get in a spraycan. I believe they go around 5-6 bucks, but I haven't bought one for quite awhile.

Some automotive paint stores have the capability of loading paint in an aresol, call around and if so bring them your paint. You'll need to add reducer ans also apply a clear over it assuming it's a basecoat/clearcoat. Bob

touch-up spray bottles

Thanks guys! I just talked to a paint & body supply shop, and the guy said that a preval sprayer doesn't have enough pressure for spraying metallic paints. I did find a website where I can buy the bc/cc paint in aerosol cans made for touch-up for around $15 a can. I found the paint code for my truck, so I think that will work fine since the areas I am fixing are small (around wheel wells) and I can feather it into the old paint. I'll let you know how it works out!
