Hardtop: Body color sides or alpine white sides?

Thinking about doing alpine white sides, roof, and an alpine white full door on a yellow truck. Also going to do an alpine white windscreen frame. Avoids paint matching issues, but will it look ok?

I think not. I did mine like a wagon and it looked great. Yellow sides,door tops and white roof.
I know AA yellow can be hard to match, but I have a body shop that does it perfectly.

A good paint supply store should be able to match the paint to where you would not be able to tell the diffrence or have a hard time.

I think it would look bad and here is proof

Follow-up Post:

White sides with body color rear door looks a little better but I still think body color sides and rear door would look great in yellow

I don't even try to get the color to match when I have parts painted. I just tell them to use LRC584 and it always comes out fine. Of course my fenders and tube are all faded, and the doors and top sides are all new and fresh, but there are panel lines, and the parts all sit at different angles, so I don't think its really a problem.

I'm with everyone else. If you did a tailgate setup with the white sides I think it would look ok, just more Seriesish, but I think it would look best all body color with a white roof.
