The factory OEM paint really isn't an enamel or a lacquer, most use waterborne finishes and dryers. Most of the repair paints are enamel or urethane based. In the US it is almost impossible to buy lacquer based paints. except for touch up spray cans and the solvent in them won't react with most factory finishes.

Spray can primers and paints are ok for minor touch ups

If you do mix a base/clear for your touch-up don't forget to get the additive for bumpers. I can't remember what it's called but the paint used for soft parts gets a few ounces to make sure the paint is flexible!

If you want it done RIGHT either take it somewhere or you will have to have the equipment to do it yourself. If you do it with a spray can it will not match and it will look like it came out out of a spray can. If you really don't care about the looks then just hit it with some Dupli-Color spray bombs.
