Default Transmission swaps

I have a 90 5L convertable with an auto trans. Is it possible to retrofit it with a standard trans without messing up the aesthetics of the car? Also, are there any super auto trans options?

You can put a C4 in it if you wanna stay auto. Tuff little transmission. But you'll lose your overdrive.

You won't mess anything up, it's all set up for it from the factory. The hardest part might be installing the pedal assembly.
