These are extremely high quality buckets! If you never used this method, and want to invest in protecting your paint, and making your cars look really clean, its worth investing money into these buckets! Thanks Jay, love you man.
I received the two bucket wash system last week and everything is high quality. I used it for the first time over the weekend and I really like the two bucket system. Makes washing the car faster and safer for your paint. But most importantly was the quality of the products. They also added a few free items. Which is always nice. Will definitely continue to buy my car care products from Jay Leno. Thanks Nick for the timely delivery and the freebies.
The materials are high quality and should last/withstand heavy use.
The wheels roll smoothly across the driveway and the grit guards work as designed (I already had a set of these and familiar/happy with the way they work).
Some improvement suggestions to make it better:
The plate that holds the 2 buckets together is high quality diamond plate however the attachment needs attention/revision. The plate has 4 holes that align with 2 of the wheel holes on each of the bucket dollies. The plate is held in place by sliding the wheel posts through the holes in the plate then into wheel holes in the dolly. However the wheels do not lock into the dollies so the connection is loose and flimsy if you try to pick up the both dollies as a single unit. The connecting plate should be bolted or otherwise permanently attached to the dollies.
The dollies need drain holes to expel water that collects when you're washing your vehicle. And since the connecting plate is so flimsy, its difficult to pick up the dollies to drain them without the wheels falling off (that hold the connecting plate on). I will probably drill a few holes in the dollies for drainage which will resolve the issue of having to pick them up to drain them.
Buckets: the buckets have a rim that the covers screw in to. The rims have a lip inside and outside the buckets. The inside lip on the rim prevents the water and sand/dirt from completely draining out of the bucket when you tip them over to empty them out.
