Ok to use 1.5 year old PPG Concept or buy new?

Quicky question, I painted my vehicle using PPG Concept, Single Stage then did a color sand. The vehicle took a bit of a hit and so now we need to repaint a good portion of one side. Insurance is picking up the tab so its not really a question of cost, im just wondering if we should buy new paint or use some of the leftover paint from the original paint job?

Part of me thinks just in case the paint shop mixes the paint slightly wrong it might be better to use the old paint. The other part thinks its old so I might as well just get some new stuff.

Spray a test panel. If the panel comes out good, so should the car.

If the paint was sealed tight and has not been frozen I expect it will be fine. I have used Concept that was older than that. I do agree that shooting a test panel would be a good idea.
