    What's the diff between these thinner for airbush cleaning

    - Gaianote T-04 tool Wash
    - Mr.Tool Cleaner
    - A.A.A Thinner

    i heard the smell/fume for Gaianote & Mr.Tool is quite strong.

    I just use nail polish remover, huge supply and very very cheap.
    Acetone and isopropyl content dissolves acrylic paints, and even RJ London acrylic spray paints which I found can be sprayed direct without thinning.

    Both acetone and isopropyl doesnt hurt the chrome, either use cotton swab to rub or lightly soak for hard to reach parts.

    the nail polish remover can use with Lacquer paint?

    That I am not absolutely sure, never used lacquer based paints, however you can just get one small bottle for a dollar or less and is easily available. Spray your paint over some scrap plastic bag and let dry, then try to clean it after using nail polish remover.

    No harm trying, if you succeed, you'll be saving $$$.

    However, I am pretty 100% sure you cannot clean enamel based paints, unless you have an acrylic base under it. The remover dissolves the under layer. Speaking from experience.
