Lowlyffe I would imagine so. Another added layer of protection couldnt hurt. I didnt but only because I didnt have any on hand at the time.

LightninSVT Would it help to spray it with a clear coat when you're done?

Lowlyffe Im no expert by any stretch but I cleaned the binding thoroughly, then buffed with a fine steel wool. I only did two coats. Lasted a season and a half before a box dinged the heel. I just buffed and reapplied.
I know you have probably heard this many times but proper spraying distance is key to making it look factory. This is usually beyond the scope of most novice painter's patience. It's a slow process to spray from distance but any closer your paint will run.
I let the paint cure for over a week.

Thanks, I've heard Krylon is pretty good. Did you spray a primer or just make sure the surface was clean, multiple coats, and let it dry for a long period of time?

Experience painting bindings?

Anyone have first hand experience painting their bindings? I have a couple pair of C02's, one in white with the red backing, and don't like the red. I taped it off and painted black last night with Plasti Dip in flat black. It looks good, think that's the direction I'm going to go, but it's not going to hold up. I can tell this will easily peel off after several uses. Love the look, but wanted some recommendations on what paint to use. I'm assuming some auto paint will work best, that can be used on plastics......

Any tips appreciated.....
