If the product has been sealed properly and you have fresh hardner and reducer there shouldn't be any problem using it...Have the gallon container shaken properly, perhaps take it to a jobber that has a paint shaker and let it shake for about 10 minutes. I had a pint of Dupont Chromalusion base coat from 1998. It was unopened and used it 10 years later.

Try a test panel first, some paint products have a tendency to become seedy, (looks like dirt in the paint) after a long shelf life, if it comes out clean and lays down properly, your good to go.
