Default Mods? Need opinions!

Hey everybody. First of all if someone could help me figure out how to post pics up on here considering im new to this, id appreciate it.

Anyways, got a 2010 convertible Gt, Its candy red with a 5speed. I put on a solo-performance exhaust kit, fog light tint, some underhood chrome, strut tower brace, and red caliper covers on. Next in the mods list is a cold air intake, tune, big brake kit, and lower the ride height. Question i have is does anyone have any ideas on exterior/interior/performance/suspension mods that could be done? Anything goes except turbo/nitrous/supercharge. Please post pics of your mods if possible, thanks!
-Mike

OK man, This is fun for me lol. ** americanmuscle.com **
some things to think about,,,,,,
exterior: chin spoiler, decklid panel maybe, rims, side scoops, new hood, different spoiler, tint on windows and/or lights, different front fascia, chrome grills, or black would go better, go for a consistent color scheme (prolly black and red lol)

interior: all weather rubber mustang floor mats (love mine), maybe a new shift ***, maybe new guages, not much for interior

performance: CAI, throttle body, manifold, cams, headers, off road x pipe, upgrade driveshaft, upgrade spark plugs and upgrade fuel injectors, new gears like 3.73 or 4.10, limited slip differential, TUNER, mass air flow meter, royal purple fluid overhaul (it really helps)

suspension: control arms, lowering springs, new sway bars, panhard bar,

thats all i got right now. hope it goes well

great suggestions, and yeah thats where i do all my shopping. i used to own a v6 and spent about 3,000 on AM on that car, and about $1,500 on AM for this car currently. I got the CDC chin, and the boss style rear diffuser. But do you know if anyone makes a hood that fits the 2010gt's that will replicate the gt500's? (i like the air vent look) but want to stay away from the trufiber fiberglass. Ive heard of it flying up on people and shaking on the highway. Thanks again

I like that good a lot to man. Especially that trufiber venom hood. I wonder if there's a special material u could put inside the engine compartment that u could put around the inside edges of the hood to cushion the rattle. I also wonder if those hood struts (I think they r hydraulic) would keep it from flying off. Think that would work??

It might bro. Im thinking either using some kind of padding, or maybe functional hood pins to keep the hood down? but then again id like to keep the 3M tape off the paint. Maybe they have another hood designed like that that would be made of a more sturdy material? idk... gonna check this out though

Shorty antenna. Ditch the plastic dealer plate cover (if that's one).
