Grant, did you sand or wire brush the buckets first ? did you use normal primer or etched primer ?

I use just ordinary primer, and seeing as you are using black, i would suggest a grey or red oxide primer, but if i was you i would try to get some etched primer unless you are going to lacquer the buckets
