Mixing Paint........

Hi,back when i was painting yachts,IMRON was the favorite brand,i used to buy 22 gallons (or so)at a time,took a NEW plastic garbage can,washed it with DAWN,2 or 3 times,dried it out good,then using IMRON reducer,cleaned it 2 more times,Changing rags often,then dumped ALL 22 gallons in the garbage can,stirred it good,to make sure all paint was the same color,(we called this bucketing) then pulled out 2 gallons at a time into my 2 1/2 gallon pressure pot,then put the garbage can lid (that i also did a cleaning job on,) back on,then proceeded to paint, never had a Boo Boo...IF you screw up a $40,000 paint job,you are DEFINATELY going to bite the pipe... (i only catalized the imron,as i was refilling my pressure pot,)
