Please Please Please

Will AG do a Grit Guard Bucket, Please.

A nice big clear/opaque bucket with a big RED AG sign on the side.


Hope I said "Please" enough.

Das.

Why the need for a grit guard anyway they're pointless. ANY agitation in the bucket grit guard or not will bring solids into suspension and back onto your mitt.

Get a couple of clear buckets and then ask AG kindly for some stickers to put on them

The dividers in grit guards, as well as the actual height of the things are designed to retain the grit.

It is amazing how much grit you get trapped in the bottom, I use two buckets and the wash bucket water remains clean while the rinse bucket gets very dirty. If the solids went back onto the mitt then the wash water would be dirty too.

I use 2bm no grit guards and the wash water in mine stays clean and the rinse water is filthy, still never get grit on my mitt as all I do is dip it in to rinse the dirty water off, no swilling it round.

Fair enough.

As I see it, you buy them once and they can't hurt.

I've a feeling the old grit guard vs no grit guard arguement has come up many times before on DW. It's like most things in car detailing, no one thing is the best and each has their own preference. Personally, I've got guards in both buckets as I thought for a one-off purchase it was worth a go. More important than the guard itself is your wash technique and quality of mitt.
