Question Exterior Doors Are Different, How Should I Paint It?

Hey everyone! This is my first post so bare with me.
So I just bought an 06' Ls Yellow Cobalt annnd I just realized that the doors are different. It seems that cobalt coupes have the vertical part of the exterior door painted black so that the transition from the back side window to the front side window looks seamless. Now one side of mine is black and one isn't... I assume the passenger door was replaced. Has anyone had this problem? How did you paint it? What paint should I use to fix it?

It's not paint, I'm pretty sure the black is actually vinyl that uou can peel off and it will match

I was thinking maybe just peel off the side with the vinyl to reveal the yellow underneath. If you planned on buying the vinyl then I'd just do both sides to guarantee consistency

Okay. I would like to peel off the one and buy new black vinyl for both sides. Do you know where to buy it? Auto Zone? Advance Auto Parts? Should I make a new post to ask people?
