Half/element doors to paint or not?

Ok! I have a yellow 2 door jeep! Just got a set of Bestop element doors with enclousres and uppers. Now what to do? Do I paint the doors yellow to match the jeep, paint them black, paint them with black bedliner or paint them with bed liner tinted to match the jeep? Seen black doors on jeeps and sometimes they look good, and sometimes they look gay!

Don't have the $500 to spend on getting the doors painted at a shop, and with them being such a large flat area rattle can paint will look like crap.

What would you do?

Black on yellow looks pretty badass.

Bedline them black and start adding armor. Think JKrazed in yellow with the doors.

After some thought, now I'm thinking bedline them then a shot of a semi or matt black paint to take the shine away so they look like soft lowers?

Get a cheap paint gun $15-40. Get some single stage paint from a paint shop in factory color $50. If you dont have a compressor get one or find a friend, and spray them.
