Pillar painting, good or bad?

Bounce off the board thinking about painting my pillars from a light to a dark color.

Any thoughts or suggestions? Advice or anecdotes?

I'm guessing that they where a lighter color before.

Might seem like an odd question but did it help with your visibility out the windshield?

Mine being almost white have this weird ghost like reflection off the windshield sometimes.

The 04 and 05 interiors come in black right?

Should be possible to order them from Toyota (albeit expensive) in what ever color interiors they sell Celicas with.
