    Default How long does mixed paint last?

    I painted my car about 2 weeks ago. I have a quart of mixed (reduced) paint that I want to use to redo my hood. How long is this mixed paint good for?

    I'm assuming that it's a base coat and not a single stage paint. It should last for years as long as the reducer does NOT have an activator mixed with it and the paint doesn't contain any activators or driers.

    Anything mixed according to manufactures specifications is now on its "pot life".
