Default What can I do to make this specific Mustang look better?

I really hate convertibles...i'm just wondering what all I can do to make my Mustang look better? I may be buying a hood with a hood scoop attached soon, what else can I do? I just feel like it's so sleeper as is...I was thinking new headlights maybe just stock ones since idk how chrome or smoked would look on this...but any ideas on what I can do to make it look better?

Here are some pics: Help me out guys! Thanks

What do you want it to look like if not a sleeper? Fast and the Furious?

I'd take off the bra, mudflaps, and the cheesegrater tail light covers. Maybe different rims but I wouldn't waste the money unless you went to a 5-lug set-up.

The bra definitely bothers me but I looked under it and it's all brownish and I really don't want to pay for a new paint job

Mud flaps off would make it look better you think? I'll have to try that.

I actually like the tail lights it's my favorite part of the car but do they just come right off? Maybe I need to see what it looks like without them.

I was thinking maybe remove the luggage rack too?

If you remove the luggage rack I think the third brake light bump would look ugly. Also you will have holes where the rack bolts on. Would have to change the trunk lid.

Ah okay
If I can get another job I may just sell it and get a newer V6 and learn how to drive that as I just don't think I can handle this thing right.

Take off the bra, wash away the gunk, then decide if the bra should still stay on then

this

and then armor all your tires and all your trim and youre all done. maybe do some headlight lense cleaning

first pic looks like you might have had some armor all on the tires, but third pic looks like they really need some.

I suck. I never thought there would be anything in to making an auto go fast, just step on the pedal, but it's like if I step on the pedal at this time/speed vs this time/speed then it will accerlate this much faster it's annoying. It seems like if I had that V6 i've been looking at it could handle me learning how to drive it a little harder.
