Not the end of the world, but it sure would bug the crap out of me, and not look very professional. Only color I could see getting away with it would be black.

Daily driver or show car, any time I see miss matched door jams, I think "yuk, was the owner just cheap or lazy". Reminds me of the 29.95 Earl Scheib paint jobs from the 70-80's. But, it is your choice.

Prep work is 99.99% of a decent paint job. Do yourself a solid and paint the door jams, you'll be glad you did in the end

Like I told you before I wouldnt paint the car a differant color and not the jambs, I think it looks cheap, retarted, and

What I would do if I was in your shoes, is paint the lower half of the car black and leave the top the factory gold, that way the gold jambs dont look out of place.

Step 1 - remove doors
Step 2 - paint doors
Step 3 - ?????
Step 4 - profit...

Sorry, couldn't help myself. Basically, just pull the doors off and spray them with the rest of the door when you do it.
