    Re: Copper Ford F-150 Platinum Edition

    Really nice job and easy write-up on the process.

    Question: How many times did you clean and rinse each tire before you applied the tire coating?

    That is unusual color on your truck, a nice change from some of the other lighter colored options!

    I used the Meguiar's Non Acid Wheel and Tire cleaner to clean the wheels and tires.

    I also used brand x wheel soap and my wheel brush to clean the tires the second time after I machine scrubbed the tires.

    In the future I will probably machine scrub the tires 3 times. I am however confident that the tires were very clean.

    I'd say I rinsed the tires a few times throughout the whole wash process. Its been a few days but I can say with confidence that I always rinse everything very well, and if I'm not sure I rinse again.

    Maybe 3-4 times.

    Also I find rinsing to be fun, so I'd imagine that helps me to be very thorough.

    Check out this awesome live training class Mike and Yancy did. I wish I had as many Guzzlers as they use in the video. I love those towels.

    How to properly clean and apply a coating to your tires - YouTube

    I cleaned the tires twice. They are brand new. In my opinion that's the beauty of applying a tire coating to brand new tires like Mike P teaches. You don't have to work hard at all to get them clean. Especially if you use a Rotary and DA scrub brush.

    Check out this article:
    How to machine scrub tires using the Cordless FLEX PE14

    I wet the wheel, tire, and surrounding areas first to create an aqua shield for any of the cleaner that may sling off during the machine scrubbing process.

    After I machine scrubbed the tire, I then quickly rinsed off the surrounding area followed by the tire with my sprayer on shower setting. Then I switched the nozzle to jet mode and blasted the tire good.

    After that I cleaned the wheel, then tire again as mentioned before, and then applied the 303 Touchless Sealant to the wheel.

    I also believe I quickly blew excess water off the wheel and tire with the MetroVac Air Force Express,

    I then washed the truck, dried it, and applied the coating.

    It's my friends truck. He was totally blown away as was I!

    Thank you so much. I love that copper color as well!
