I disagree. ^
Either leave them flat black or have them professionally painted. You'll never get the paint to match the factory black paint if you do it yourself. It'd only come out worse IMO.
And...I wish I would have gone with half doors.

I have the Mopar 1/2 doors and love them. I know I didn't pay near that much, do some shopping around.
Buy them and then take them to the body shop to be painted. They can put them together.
After getting them painted I put them together in about 2 hours.

So…that sounds expensive. If it were me, and I wanted half-doors, I'd skip the power anything. The whole point of a half-door is to not have windows…right? Cause if you have windows, then it's a whole door…right? f you don't have windows, you don't need a power driver mirror, cause it's in reach of your hand.
For $5000+ I'd just roll my full door window down when I wanted some air.

Mopar Half Doors
Got a quote today from the local dealership for Mopar half doors, painted and installed, with power mirrors. Here is what they sent:
Front half door kit: 82212124 $1210
Front window kit: 82212132 $435
Front trim panel kit:82212639 $103
Rear half door kit:82212123 $1260
Rear window kit:82212134 $435
Rear trim panel kit: 82212134 $103
Mirror kit: 82213079 $164
Wiring kit:82212943 $45.25
So the total for all parts would be 3755.25 plus tax
The labor for installation and paint would be an additional $1800
As for the trim panel kits they are listed for 2011-2013.
So $5,555 total. The last part about the trim was in response to a specific question about the availability of new trim panels for the 2013 model as opposed to using trim from the 2007-2010 models. It doesn't sound like he knows the answer.
