Good afternoon forum,
So I’ve been lurking here for a bit and I’ve been able to find most of the answers to my questions by using the search bar but I have one that I’ve done a little research on and haven’t really found the answer for my situation.
I have three aluminum horse trailers that I will be cleaning in a couple weeks (I’m away for my other job right now). I had my wife pick up some aluminum brighter (50/50) and truck wash (4-1) from our local supplier. The ratios shown are what they recommend. They recommended doing a two step process, aluminum brighter first and then apply truck wash after let those two dwell and rinse. The way I’ll be applying is using a 2gal pump Sprayer for the aluminum brighter and then DS the truck wash. Questions I have:
-Does that method sound decent enough to get me started?
-Should each step get its own dwell time or apply first and then second and let dwell together right away?
-What should be the approximate dwell time?
-from what I’ve read, sometime brushing is needed. Is that with a stiff bristle or go on the soft side?
I’ll absolutely do a test spot before going to town. I have no photos of the trailers yet, my wife is working that part. I’m working with a 5/3 cold water set up. (Having a new tailer being built right now)
Thanks for your time and if I’m forgetting anything please let me know. I look forward to hearing back.
