Sears Spaceliner - fore portion of diptych

After many delays, numerous distractions and more than a few detours I've finally finished the front portion of the Sears Spaceliner diptych. My problem now is how to display them. 1.) Paint the sides the background color then hang them side by side without framing them. Good but the hardboard panels are brittle and the edges can easily chip. 2.) Frame each one separately. Good but there's a lot of bulk in two frames hanging side by side. 3.) Frame them both within a single frame with a small space between each panel. Good, but does it loose some of that "diptych" quality? This option also limits the hanging possibilities. This is going to take some thought.
