Are you using the 2-bucket from Adam's with the scrub grill?

No. I just have 2 5 gallon buckets. Actually, one is from Home Depot and one is from an ice cream place.

I do want to get a grit guard but haven't yet. I am just real careful not to put my wash mit too far down into the rinse bucket.

Right now I am using all Meg's products as I got a good deal on them.

I have a friend who has a porter cable but he lives a few hours away. He'll be visiting this summer and I think I can convince him to bring it. Then I'll use sopme higher end products.

I just have a cheap Wal Mart buffer for now

Yeah, now if I can just keep the birds away from it. There's fresh crap on it almost every day

Yeah.
Somewhat here.
I do stop by and check out the fourms a lot, just not post.
That might change.
I need the Terrain washed really bad, been 3 months now without getting a bath and she is a mess.

Well don't push yourself! But would love to see that clean terrain when it gets cleaned!

You should check out MeguiarsOnline.com and check out some of the forums there. Great info on great products.
