Kevin Tetz explains Mix Ratios and how to properly mix automotive paint when spraying your project vehicle.
The key: don’t think of the components in terms of gallons, quarts, or ounces — think of everything in “parts” — So a 2:1 ratio is 2 parts paint to 1 part activator.
Mixing Cups from Eastwood are available in several sizes – pints, quarts and 5 quart containers and make mixing paint easier than ever.
Mix paints accurately: automotive finishes cost enough. Minimize the risk of inaccurately mixing a batch of paint. These cups are graduated to match popular mixing ratios. Much more accurate than trying to read a mixing stick in a dark metal can.
