White or Black doors?

Ok so when i bought the jeep the doors were painted white. I get told by my friends that i need to paint them black to match the body. Some days i want to paint them black, but then other days i don't want to. I hope you guy's can help me out and give me your opinion. This is what it looked like when i picked it up, i will obviously fix the rust. Thanks

You either need to get a big star to put on the white doors or paint them black. Your call.

BLACK without any question. Stars, eh. Unless you number out the vehicle properly the effects are kind of lost.

[B][I]New Mexico Driving Rules...[/I][/B][LIST][*]As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.[*]Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.[*]NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
[*]Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. Its called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.[/LIST]

I was going to say just to forget the doors but then realised where you live and understood you just might need them soon Go black, nicer look and at the same time you can give them a couple more years by cleaning them well before paint.
