Do you degrease them before painting?

330s would be hard to boil.

A quick wipe down with acetone or a cycle through the dishwasher is all that's needed.

In my experience that paint won't stay on for long. You'll have your rust before season is out, especially in the acidic coastal conditions I think you're setting steel in. Personally I kind of agree with your pop: A very light rust coat will help the dye (in my case rustoleum primer) stick a little longer and doesn't hurt spring strength at all.

Rustolium rust colored primer then some hunter green camo

Spritz 'em with strong salt water and then watch them rust, but it only takes a little for the dye to work.

Rustoleum rusty metal primer is very high in solids. The can sure seems heavier than any other color in a similar can. I set the springs, with safety's on before painting them. The coils on the springs open a bit and I can shake the trap around for better coverage. I really soak the spring coils. Once coated with primer and its dry then a hit here and there with flat black and dark brown to break up the shape.


your only allowed so many sunrises... I aim to see every one of them!

I'll consider acetone for that.

I unbox them, 1 long load through the dishwadher
Dry for a day, then paint. For 220's 280's 330's and 660's also my MB750's

Ok, makes sense.
Whether washing traps with water or removing them from vinegar, do ya recommend just letting them AIR dry.
