You could trt to start peeling it off BUT is going to take a while. Or you could apply the 1" chrome tape n put it over it. Same thing happened to me.

The chrome strip fading is pretty common. What's weird is that the smaller strips that saddle the rear window do not fade. I've seen a number of maximas on the road, including mine, that still have shiny rear strips.

I think some people have also plasti-dipped their strips.

Every ones roof strips dull, its sad but true...

If you want them black Pep Boys has some black tape thats perfect for this. I did it to mine and it looked good. I think its like 8.00 a roll. You'll need 2.

Me personally, I plastidipped mine. BUT, before I did, I applied tape and peeled it off, amd found out there's a bright chrome underneath that dull surface.

If you're going the black route then do blackout tape. Plastidip works nice for a while, but it dulls and peels if it isn't perfect

The "chrome strips" on the roof are plastic with a chrome finish. The ones on the wear window are actual chrome, whoch is why it hold up better. I plastidipped mine, but unless you have the time to sit and prep for it, tape is probably the easiest way to make it look better.
