I'll do that. I'm going to do it tonight. The contents in the can are still very liquid, and just as consistent as it was a few weeks ago.
I'll let you know how it goes.

Well, all is fine. The Por 15 went in and flowed just fine. Seems to be setting up well too.
Using it more than once seems OK.
Maybe the key here is that I cleaned the rim and the lid for the can it's in so no product was not exposed to the air in any way.
I know if I do that with a tube of silicone it last a LOT longer.
Worked for me!

I've seen lots of people throw a few marbles inside the tank and shake the hell out of it to knock stuff loose, then wash it out with gas or whatever. A buddy of mine owns a hot rod shop and he also airbrushes bikes, and he's actually cut the tank in half of one old knucklehead, scrubbed the hell out of the inside and welded it back together. Once it was painted you'd never know what he did. Hell I don't think the customer even knows to this day!
