Exterior Plastic on 09 Accord EX-L Sedan

Since I've gotten a DA, I've been good about doing good semi-annual to tri-annual clay/seals to help protect the paint. I haven't gotten into polishing it yet. But I am satisfied with how the paint looks (I feel the grey is hiding a lot of sins).

But the plastic between the doors on the back of the front door and front of rear door is like 6 inches of deteriorating surface. I would like to restore it, but baring that I want to prevent it from further degradation. I have a coworker who has similar surfaces on his car; they look like shit.

My problem here, is I don't understand my problem enough to search for a solution. So I am fine if you want to just tell me to search for it, but please give me a few keywords to look for. It turns out that "ugly door plastic 2009 Accord" returns an unusable mess.

Try B-pillar black paint in your search. I had the same on an 03 EXL coupe. Automotive paint is thinner than it used to be. I don't know what you can do to prevent further degrading. It's just lousy paint quality.

On my 2004 that was simply black tape. Any quick detailer brought it back to life temporarily. If the tape was removed the paint beneath it was the color of the rest of the car. It may be ebtirely different on a 2009.

How about some pictures of the area?
