The other day I noticed the pillars on my car were getting ugly spots, anyone know if you can replace those?

We should add this to common 00 issues. Seems that not only can the 00'* have the beautiful hood herpies...many of you have had another issue I was never aware of.

The painting looks to be worth a try, but I would suggest getting some with Flex in it. I bet regular paint will be flaking off after a while. Mine are a bit scarred, but not too bad. I actually posted about this when I first got the car and someone mentioned trying peanut butter. It didn't really work, but it made it look a little better. I think it'* because of the oil.

How hard, and what tools should I use to pop it off? Things to look for?

I've got the same problem on the doors of my 00. When I bought the car I figured it was just fading and I'd get around to fixing it. But after a salty MI winter, I've noticed actual cracking and I can see rust forming under the plastic!!
:(
You're not alone on this one, I need a solution too!

When I painted mine over the rubber, which looks ok but not as nice as stripping it off, I used a paint for plastic and it has held up well under the NC sun. I used gloss, but if you can find plastic paint in flat, it would probably look better. What I did was easy and I didn't have to remove the trim or even rough up the rubber. Just clean it well with spirits or the like.

If you just do the sills, it won't stand out too much.
