Its a Belt Molding. They're about 20 bucks IIRC from the dealer.
Take your door panel off and take your mirror off (you can do it without removing it, but its easier to do it with it off) theres gonna be like 3 or 4 screws holding it in, take them out and whats left should come out. reverse procedure to re-install.

i wonder if the ones from the dealer are pre-painted / finished flat black? this sounds like an easy swap out for something thats really an eyesore...

I put some armor all on mine and it looks alot better but yours do look bad. Like StxDangerRanger says, if they are only $20 apiece, I would just swap them out.

Your better off buying the molding rather than trying to take them out to paint them.
The metal piece is part of the door, the belt molding itself is what bolts in.
and yes, the molding comes flat black from the dealer.
