Meguiars buckets or Chemical guys ones

Worth checking out ECP / CP4L as they sometimes have them cheap - they also do plain white ones I seem to remember

I have some old CG buckets. The sort of see through ones.

Only problem is, they are too big for my grit guards. I dont know if I need new buckets or if there are bigger grit guards?

99p orange bucket from B&Q for the wheels and 2 yellow megs buckets for the car. The megs buckets I would not have bought myself but someone was struggling for a birthday gift for me and these were something I would like but not something I would have spent my hard earned on. It was a win win. Actually very happy with them.

I would say it's a reasonable price for buckets, most 'detailing' buckets are overpriced for the name so that makes these look cheap.

The only real difference between the ones I've posted and your megs one is the name

I have CG buckets and both the cyclones and the original guards fit ok. When I used to use plasterers buckets I cut an old piece of hose along the length and fitted it around the edge, did have to wedge them in a bit but it did the trick and also stopped them floating up.

Weird, with my original Grit Guards there is a solid gap all the way round the edge. I can sort of get away without them floating.

I have a Megs yellow bucket that I use for wheels and the GG fits perfectly.
