I have put small holes in the rim of the can so it would drain, but I don't like doing that because it doesn't seem to seal back very well. I also had a few good points on another forum that if it were in the tapered top cans similar to activator it would be immortal H*** to add mixing tints and to stir would be virtually impossible. I used to have some lids for gallon cans that I bought at a hardware store that looked like someone had take the plastic spout from a 5 gallon pail and put it in a 1 gallon lid. I loved those, but haven't been able to find any for a few years. I know Lowes has a plastic version, but it is for the house paint style cans and will not fit automotive cans.....wonder if people would buy something if it were cheap enough? I may need to start a little spare time project.
