Grumpys93 seems to have made some friends!
Is old paint still good after years of sitting?

To all my painters out there. I've had old paint I never opened sitting in storage for about 7-9 years. Is it still able to be used? Or should I just toss it?

I wouldn't say it's worth the risk, even though I don't know what you're wanting to paint

If it comes out spotty, it'll be a pain to correct or repaint. I wouldn't risk it unless you're ok with imperfections, or repainting with new paint. I have no direct experience, but I know age can do weird things to anything that is expected to remain uniform.

If you have access to a spare hood, that would be a good thing to test on. It's large enough that any problems with consistent coverage should be evident. It's easy to move around, and cheap enough to discard if the results aren't to your liking.

I honestly believe it has to do with the quality of the paint, i know pre mixed paint is supposed to have a shelf life of 1 year but i had a pint of PPG in Viper Blue that i had purchased back in 2003 for a project bike that never got finished but in 2013-14 i took it down to my painter and although he was doubting using it he layed it with multiple coats of High solid clear and it came out fantastic. I actually also have a gallon of oxford white i planned to use on my CB from 2014 that i plan to shoot myself .
