Paint/Body shops, especially touch-up (airbrush), in Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW)

I'm here to dredge up an oft discussed topic. DFW paint and body, but with a twist! Or, maybe not so twisty, sorta, or something.

One of my cars is a diamond grey metallic 2008 Scion TC. While in relatively mint condition for a vehicle I've owned for nearly nine years, it needs some paint and dent love. Mostly the "f**k your cheap car" scratches and dents variety from parking lots.

Does anyone in our glorious sprawling megalopolis offer minor dent and paint matched airbrush work on metallic paint anymore? I do not want to repaint the whole car as 90% of it is fine. My searches on here and other forums haven't unearthed one.

Secondarily, below is a list of all the body shops recommended locally on this forum in the past two years. Does anyone suggest one of them for such work?

Thanks, y'all.

If you're in Roanoke, Scotty's Automotive. They did a great job on my BRZ when I brought it in for repair and paint. I even got some airbrush done on the hood.
