I went through some experimentation before getting it right.

I know you didnt ask about the process, just the paint, but i thought id elaborate

Sanded everything
used a white, plastic specific primer for about 4 layers
Acrylic paint, each color is a different brand, i cant remember them, for about 6 layers, light sanding in between each layer
then lastly, used an outdoor, weather/waterproof, flexible clear super gloss topcoat, for about 3 layers,

its completely water proof now,tested dumping water on it, with flex just in case the highback bends so it wont crack, and pretty strong, I tested it on brick wall and it barely scratched the topcoat

I cant get rid of them. They have been the most responsive/sickest bindings i have ever owned. i have tried 3 new pairs since them and havent been able to get rid of them. I even ghetto rigged the baseplate cusion so that it would fit a 4x4 pattern.. took an exacto knife to that bitch to cut some new holes.

That was me and I ended up buying those (2009 model in black, size medium). I think they were $250 or so including shipping. They're used but have less wear than my current 2010 C60s with 50 days on them.

Put it this way, I'm planning on pairing C60s with a $1500 board. I believe in these bindings!
