hard top/hard door paint scheme

I just bought steel doors and a hardtop, neither of which match my CJ. Going to paint the hardtop black, and debating on whether to do the doors the same or match the body (blue) color. Having the doors & top match looks fine with a soft top- anyone have this setup with hard doors? pics?

Another thing that looks cool is just the top part of the door matching the hardtop, like this (first pic on the link)

You know, I was wondering the same thing. I have a hard top and doors that I am thinking about painting and putting on the CJ, but the CJ has a painted pin stripe across the body, meaning I would have to paint the door to match the body and find the paint to match the pinstripe and paint on the pinstripe too. I figured it would just be easier to paint the top and doors tan since my soft top has a tan top and doors.

Not trying to hijack. Sorry.

More opinions or pics????

Eeewwww! I like CRJ1968's idea. I think it is more appropriate.
