Do you cover, or even can you, the dog and jaw contact points on bodygrips.

I have done 100s of BGs by powder coating them. I never covered any of the parts. But always leave the traps In the sprung position.

Less time consuming to scrape em later than to tape. Especially if you have a dremel

Ok thanks, have a place near me that can do them. I have three or four dozen Belisle 330ís and a like number of 280ís. Said theyíd have to sandblast them if rusty. Itís not getting cheap anymore to paint with Rustoleum or dip in the dips. If this will last a few years it may be worth it. Havenít sent them a pic or showed a trap yet for an estimate. They donít know what the traps look like.

I have some 160s that I had powered coated and there still good after 15 years. My foot holds take a little beating but for the most part the powered coating holds up pretty good.

Have you got a price per trap It's pretty pricey. I knew the guy who did mine and I got It done supper cheap. Like a $1.00 a trap and those were 160s. The foot holds cost me $3.00 a trap and they were 650s.

I sent them picks of several traps for quotes. Their other stuff sure looks nice on their web page.
