How can I do these 3 things
1) Use a memorystream

MemoryStream m = new MemoryStream();

serialize object into stream.

2) Use MemoryStream.ToArray()
which will convert your memorystream into a byte []

3) Call Convert.ToBase64(yourbytes) which will return you a byte []

Thanks in Advance

Perhaps something like this?

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Binary;

namespace _27361478
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
            BinaryFormatter serializer = new BinaryFormatter();
            Car c = new Car() { Make = "Honda", Model = "Civic" };

            serializer.Serialize(ms, c);
            byte[] byteArr = ms.ToArray();
            string binStr = Convert.ToBase64String(byteArr);
            byte[] binary = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(binStr);
        }
    }

    [Serializable()]
    public class Car
    {
        public string Make { get; set; }
        public string Model { get; set; }
    }
}
