got these off of craigslist for 500 bucks and r in excellent condition but should i hold out and paint them red or just rattle can them black ? :banghead: does anyone have a pic of a tj with black doors ?

I'd say rattle can them red, then paint to match later...

slyr114 03-18-2012 04:56 PM

I say keep em! they look so beautiful on there! But really ive seen black doors on red jeeps and they look pretty good, but imo i think red jeeps look best with red doors. Of course i think every jeep looks best with no doors.

also could not find a pic of red jeeps with black door but i found the opposite XD http://i788.photobucket.com/albums/y...8/3e813cc3.png

Just do a semi gloss black don't try to color match them if you can't because they will look stupid imho. So ya black would be cool or even linex if there is no future for you color matching them.

You want these... Lol

03flwrangler 03-18-2012 06:05 PM

match em..looks like a$$ otherwise. at least you have full doors though..nice find!

jspeer1130 03-18-2012 06:10 PM

Doesn't matter what color they are if they are sitting in the garage like mine :)

tnjeeptj 03-18-2012 06:18 PM

Keep 'em blue;) You'll definitely have a unique look going on there.

Yikes! Good find but i'd hate to see the TJ those doors came off of.

Serge627 03-18-2012 07:13 PM

Those doors are bad to the bone!

SurfKaster 03-18-2012 07:18 PM

Dude those are sweet. Looks like your Jeep is about to take off. It also says don't eff with me, because I don't care

Bertha2002 03-18-2012 07:26 PM

lol i like it

Hammerdown 03-18-2012 07:31 PM

There is a reason bodies and doors are color-mathced for thousands of years. Any other way looks bad.

Jerry Bransford 03-18-2012 07:37 PM

I'd spray them with a matching 'Flame Red' you can have put into an aerosol can at any automotive paint shop. The TJ's red is hard to match unless you use the correct Flame Red that any auto paint shop can easily and cheaply mix up for you and put into an aerosol spray can. It will be a lacquer which will dry hard. Enamel paints like Rustoleum never really get hard and they are much more easily damaged.

A self-etching primer, only available at an auto paint store, will go a long way to making for a better rattle-can paint job.

So I'm curious - Why did you need new doors?

MickeYJ 03-19-2012 01:56 AM

ReubenLemley 03-19-2012 02:50 AM

slyr114 03-19-2012 05:37 PM

i say keep the doors the same color, and try to color match the jeep with the doors! Rock that blue awesomeness

Rubicon06Va 03-19-2012 05:48 PM

Paint them flame red! Dual color is ridiculous, IMO.

SteelBlue44 03-19-2012 06:05 PM

:eek:All i have to say is i completely agree with the title of this thread:D sorry!

Dragonii 03-19-2012 08:21 PM

If you decide to rattle can them and want to go red... Autozone sells Duplicolor Perfect Match in Flame Red.
http://images.oreillyauto.com/parts/...419_020410.jpg

It's a pretty good match.

How does the paint hold onto the interior?, bc i know it's a textured surface and didn't think it would hold too well.

Not sure yet, I just did it yesterday. lol

But I did Krylon Fusion first, then roughed it a bit and sprayed the Perfect Match over that. Kind of using the Fusion as a primer.
