Ok SPI gang bangers got a question for you. Now, first off, I can't make clear enough, when I was a paint rep I hated this kinda question. LOL The answer is right there on the tag, the date is it, don't question it.

But that is when we LIVED by something like that date or the mixing ratio. But I also would do tests to find out how far can you go outside the box and still have a quality product on your car. Now mixing ratio is one I never checked, but things like my question to day is one I would check. I WILL be doing a test with this but I wanted to ask my fellow SPI gang bangers what they thought.

Yes I know I could call SPI but the answer will be what I used to give, THE DATE IS EVERYTHING.

I want to know if anyone has pushed it and what do they think. I know an open can, forget it, you NEVER want to use an old opened hardener. But what I have is unopened. I bought all the primer and hardener I needed for my truck and then I moved and haven't worked on it in two years.

I am getting back to it, the date on my unopened can says to use it within one year of the 06-21-19. Well we are two years past that date. What do you all think? I WILL buy a new one for the outside stuff but doing the dash and underhood and stuff like that I will push it a bit.

What do you guys think?

I have a gallon of clear that was given to me. I'm going to mix a small batch, and spray it to see if it kicks off good. But probably wont use it on a car though. Not on the outside anyways.

My wife is in to making Flying pigs out of freon bottles, and the corners of car hoods.

You could probably get away with it on the interior, and jambs.

On the SPI website under "FAQ" there is a heading about Acrivator Shelf Life-for the Epoxy Activator it states 3 years, so you are right on the edge-tough call, but I'd try it on a virgin piece if steel and see how it looks and if it passes the scratch test-
