I am new to this site but not new to trapping.

I did however just purchase a dozen Diablo dp's from pcs outdoors to toss into my arsenal. Since I have never used a dp I was wondering if I needed to dye and wax them like I do my duke 1 1/2 coil springs. I have heard of some guys just painting them, and other guys just using them as is right out of the box. I just didn't know what would be the best thing for me to do.

When I wash the oil/grease off my coil springs, i found that what worked best for me was just putting them in the dishwasher with some dishwasher detergent and maybe 1 1/2 - 2 cups of distilled whit vinegar in the bottom of the dishwasher, and running on heavenly wash. By the time the dry cycle is complete they already have a nice coating of rust for dyeing.

I tried this with my dps. A couple times. They just won't seem to rust at all.

Any advice, ideas or direction would really be appreciated.

Welcome to WAT reverend, not too many folks check out these state threads, bring your question out to the Camp Fire or Trap Line threads and you'll get better responses.
