    Re: Cheap and simple detailing cart...

    Picked up my cart today all they had was white, I added a LED light, I used bunge cords for now, the bunge cords make it secure but i would like to make it more permanent...

    I havent measured but eyeing them they do look equal distance apart.

    The wheels also have locks on them if that makes a difference. The insulation foam may be a good idea.

    I have 3 brick steps leading from the garage into the house and my car is parked there. Went to babies `r us and picked up corner and straight bumpers to protect the car. They are sticky on the back side so it`s just plug and play. Now that you mentioned covering the corners of the cart, I`m going to do that. Thanks for the suggestion.
    Best regards,
    Tom

    I have and use that cart. I picked mine up at Menards. For those that don`t know, menards is a regional home improvement store in the Midwest. I got mine just before chirstmas, it was $49.99 with a $10 rebate. Really a great addition to the garage and I have used it quite a bit for just about everything.

    Cheap and simple detailing cart...

    Well I went to get the cart shown on here and instead they had this one for $4 more. I like it with the fact I could adjust the shelves to fit my needs and any water would just drop away and not get trapped and rust anything too quickly. They also had the plastic bins you see 5 for 5$...a win-win!

    I`ve got two of these. One is a three shelf model and the other a 6 shelf model. I picked them up on eBay a few months ago.

    Choice 42" x 20" x 38" Black 3 Shelf Utility / Bussing Cart

    (Sorry for the huge picture!)

    I`ve had really good luck with these carts, I`ve got a couple of them at my work (auto repair)

    Only $63 normal price, and They go on sale from time to time so you can pick one up for $75 or less shipped. Super sturdy (we use one at my work for heavy shop tools), and roll really well even with over a hundred pounds on it. Locking casters on 2 wheels. Actual working area is 31"x19", so if you wanted to cut holes for 2 buckets, they`d fit side by side.

    I`ve thought about cutting holes in the middle shelf to fit the buckets, then sand down the posts slightly so you could easily lift off the top level. Pull it off for bucket access for the wash, put it back on for a working surface for the rest of the job.

    Re: Cheap and simple detailing cart...

    So I made a mod to the cart I picked up. I needed some hangars and thought about "s" hooks but didn`t want them sliding around. So I took some safety wire (those in aviation or racing know what I`m talking about) and made my own hooks that won`t slide. I then double wrapped with yellow heat shrink so I could see them easier and protect from scratching a little bit.
