  1. if i want to mix 3:1, i would go to the 3:1:1 column, pour the clear up to number 3, then pour hardener up to the next line of 3?

  2. Sir is there a computation on how to get the ratio …ex. I have 16.5 and 2.5 liters of paint and I only mix a little m..

  3. Ok. I just painted the underside of the bed of my 85 ford f150 restoring it and I was so busy that day I forgot my hardeners and thinners. How long should the paint job last until it starts deteriorating.

  4. great video,but wouldn't you know it, I got a 8:1:2 paint to mix and cups with the closest ratio being 8:1:1

  5. Thanks for doing these great videos. Simple question, how do you pour the paint without making a mess, wasting expensive paint, and gumming up the lid seal area? You would think that there was a better way to do it by now.

  6. The question is:
    Where to buy pearl/metalic/flat colors to mix per color code ?
    As well as where to get color code mixing ratios
