    Acrylics will work fine. Just make sure, if you clearcoat it with an enamel or spray-on clearcoat, that all the rubbery parts have acrylic paint on them or else the spots that don't have paint will end up sticky. If you wanna strip the paint from them before painting, use 91% isopropyl alcohol, let 'em soak for a little bit, then scrub with an old toothbrush while still wet with the alcohol. If you're gonna paint over them completely, though, you can probably get away without stipping the paint off.
