need opinions, to paint or not to paint.

Last spring a fellow coworker offered to sell me his daughters jeep the dealer did not want to give them anything for it so I picked it up pretty dirt cheap. I have had a handful of 6 cylinders tj's in the past and have never owned a 4 banger but for what I was picking it up for I just couldn't pass it up. Its a 2000 jeep wrangler se 5speed with solar yellow paint. When I got it home I new it had a rust problem both the fenders needed replacing they were completely rotted and the header was cracked pretty bad. Since owning it the past 5 months I have did a lot of work to the little jeep and have it running and looking alot better than it was when I bought it. I didn't have the money at the time to repaint the two used fenders that I picked up so I bought a can of primer and some nice matte black paint and painted the fenders for the time being. well I had plans to eventually repaint the fenders one day but I think the black fenders are kind of growing on me and have had a few people tell me to just leave them painted black they look good that way. so im looking for opinions piant back to factory color or just leave them black. all I have right now is a couple crappy cell phone pics i'll take some good shots with the digital later and post them

I like it, I'd say keep them black. Like the others said some black corner guards would look great.

Roll on bedliner for those areas would be cool!

If you want to do that little yellow rig like that I will donate the coating.

DO IT, can't pass up a deal like that and the bed liner adds a crap load of protection. I think it looks good to boot!

Ontopic- Id go with the bedliner. The texture/functionality is a win-win
