    Pitch that bag of dye to side, degrease traps and let rust then paint with flat black paint....
    I use coffee filters for pan covers
    Peatmoss for covering .... Them traps shows fox hollow chain stakes (my favorite ones) practice setting them and making sure there's no wobble,
    Repeat
    Repeat
    Repeat
    It pays off in long run

    I’ve never used the MB 550 traps but never heard anything but great reports on them.

    Everyone is a little different.Ive used the logwood dye for years.I don’t use pan covers I use a trappers cap to bed my traps and cover with dry dirt this way you can really pack your dirt inside of the jaws the only loose dirt is right over the pan.That Violater 7 is a excellent lure.Not saying anyone is right or wrong just what works for me.

    I've got a dozen or so of the 550 offset 2 coils and have no complaints with them. That starter kit looks like a good start. Might add some wax to your order. I agree with Trapper Delk, degrease the traps and let them rust. I use the logwood dye and then wax.
