Made up a batch last night and treated my foothold and so fare I'm liking it. I can't smell anything and I've barely made a dent in the 2gal I made.

50/50 mix of rustolum and paint thinner.

Can you do rusty traps with that Wolfie, or do they have to be shined up?

Yes you can. I use heavy rust primer and flat black pain. Thin it down and good to go. Ive found it works better with the primer mixed with the paint.

I did this to all my traps this year and I really liked it as well. No paint, just the primer. Thinking about doing a few in white paint now for the winter/snow season.

I did 9 dozen Rams in September using Naptha for thinner. I'm very pleased so far.

Awesome, thanks. I used this (I used paint only) on some new traps this year but have some with a light rust coat on them that I was going to dye with walnuts. I might just dye my DLS's and use the rustoleum on the rest.

I used it for my traps for the first time a month ago, but I mixed it WAY too thin. It took 5 dips to get it done because I was too cheap to buy more paint. Other than that, I'm happy with it.

I used this method this year too. I really like it, and yes, I did all my traps including my K9 traps. Disclaimer- I did all my traps in June and then let them hang outside (covered) for 2 months before putting them into their totes.

50/50 mix (primer/thinner) worked very well for me. Can't give an opinion on paint/thinner ratio yet

Acetone works better than thinner. IMHO Drys quicker, less smell, down side is it evaporates so fast, you have to add more& remix.

How much paint/naptha did you need to do 100 traps? What size were the traps?

I dipped all my k9 traps for the first time this year and really liked it. I used water based paint and primer and then dipped in full metal jacket. Did it in aug when it was warm. Got 13 coyotes during my 2 week trapping vacation.
