2008 GT Appearance Mods?

Hey, everyone. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. I'm new here but here it goes.

So, I've had my 2008 GT since November 2012. Until now, the only mods I have done are MUSTANG GT white rocker stripes as well as a few minor satin trim things on the interior.

Anyways, I have recently gotten a mod bug in the last few weeks and want to start making my mustang a hobby instead of just a nice car. I am a full time college student with a part time job, so upgrades will be a long, slow process.

Anyways, I just ordered a chrome fuel door with black mustang lettering from American Muscle. The next thing I plan to order (probably when I get my next paycheck) are quarter window louvers.

So, any cool appearance mod suggestions for you great mustang people?

I am pretty much going for a retro look (I love 60s-early70s mustangs) but I am open to all suggestions.

Thanks!

That mod bug is a pain in the *** that won't go away lol. Just go to american muscle and look at exterior styling to get an idea of what you like

Thanks

Thanks for the advice everyone.

I have put together a list of things I want the most. Of course, I want more than what's on this list but this is what I realistically expect to be able to get in the next 6 months or so.

Exterior:
1. MMD Chrome Billet Aluminum Fuel Door w/ Mustang Lettering (already ordered)
2. MMD Quarter Window Louvers Pre-Painted
3. Sequential tail lights (haven't decided if I want new tail lights altogether or just sequential)
4. Brake Light Chrome Dress Up Kit
5. Side Scoop (Not positive on whether or not I want this yet)
6. MMD Retro Mirrors

Interior:
1. Modern Billet Satin Window Switch Plates w/Mustang Lettering
2. Modern Billet Satin Shifter Bezel (Automatic)

Eventually I also want to get some basic performance upgrades such as a CAI and a tuner but I am in no hurry for these.

The price of the fuel door that I just got THIS WEEK is now 55$ cheaper than what I paid for it. This sucks.

-Definitely, retro mirrors are a must.
-If you're going retro for taillights, I'd say get LED ones with sequentials and throw some chrome trim around them
*but really I prefer the Gen 5 smoked ones (I'm doing a lot of retro pieces too but these taillights are just dramatically sexier IMO)
-Just bought both the Eleanor scoops and the louvers and I prefer the louvers; the scoops stuck out a little too far for me.
-Also I just bought the MMD side scoops (not the ones meant to blend in with the fender) but the more retro styled ones.

Also if the price dropped so soon on your fuel door, ask them if they can give you some credit.
