Tan Hard Top on 80 CJ7- What color should I paint the doors?

I have an 80 CJ7 with a fiberglass tub that was painted British Racing Green (for lack of better description). I just recently acquired a Khaki (Tan) Hard Top. I also got a set of fiberglass doors with slider windows. YEAH!!!!! Look out cold winer temps!

Question- I am taking the doors to a shop to paint them and get them to fit them properly.
1. Should I make the doors match the body paint? Forrest Green
2. Should I have to doors painted to match the hard top? Khaki Tan
3. Should I get the doors painted- black?

Thanks for any replies. I took some pictures and will try to post them tomorrow. If anyone has any suggestions or photos to go with them I would appreciate it.

just looked at quite a few jeeps and see most match the body color, but wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something. I heard sometimes that when you buy an after market hardtop, it comes with the matching doors, that would lead me to believe they were usually the same color.
