im pretty sure theres no realistic way of painting a new
permanent base over the existing one. atleast ive never
heard of a successful way because the base is constantly
grinding against the snow. and if you did find a way to
get the paint to stick even on snow i would imagine you'd
go alot slower than with the factory base.

no.

Nope id say just paint your top sheet not you base cus that will fuck up the pores and make wax not work like its supposed to and def dont do a sticker cuz that will block the pores of the base completely

Just leave your base alone. everything you are talking about doing other than wax will just mess it up.
