|deadbodyman||I'd find a paint shaker and give em a good shaking...it'll all be settled at the bottom and very hard to mix with a stick,maybe a paint mixer that chucks up to a drill...if the hardener has ever been opened it'll be all dryed up by now and need to be replaced but both parts of the etch primer should be good to go.|

Only way to know for sure is to mix up a small batch and test it.

|deadbodyman||I wouldnt use it on anything I really cared about but I pulled some 10 yr old paint (base) off the shelf and didnt have any trouble,it was a little thick so I added extra reducer..As long as its sealed up tight and theres no crust on top it should be ok. This was for the kid next doors bike (freebee) ...|

If they are kept in a controlled environment where the temp is near 70 degrees I would say about two years in a sealed container.

Is there a shelf life for automotive paints and primers?
I'm not talking any specific brands or types, just in general.
