[Help] Want a Show Car

Hey, I actually just attended a car show yesterday, and many people thought my car was in the show. Lots of people complimented me, etc. Now, this is a small town i live in ( approx. 65 000 people ) Im looking to enter some car shows, but I know I need to do some work first. So far i've sanded down the rear wheel drums & front calipers and repainted them red, and bought new black projector headlights. I need to repaint the front bumper this summer, and possibly buy a carbon fiber hood. What else can i look into doing? I have no intentions on making this car fast. Any suggestions? How much is it to redo the interior of the car? I'm hoping to remove the back seats this summer and replacing my current system with a fiberglass red box, with 2 12" kicker subs. ***Also there is some sealant on my sideskirts peeling off where the edge meets the door, it is black and kinda standing out. What can I do about this.*** All help is greatly appreciated! Thanks! PS. heres some pics of the car before I did some stuff.

First thing, get rid of the gay *** altezzas...
the body kit isn't too bad actually. It needs more of a drop though.
You can never go wrong with a carbon fibre hood.
Shave the badges and stuff.
Clean the hell out of it... it's gotta look like brand new.

The lowering is a problem, because where I live the roads are very very rough and bumpy. The front bumper scrapes as it is.

Re: [Help] Want a Show Car

Put some LED spray nozzles and chrome wiper blades on to match that body kit you have.
Keep it stock man, all that bullshit makes your car look like ****, then again, I'm old!

Your front bumper looks higher off the ground than my stock bumper. You need to do something about that because is makes your car look funny. Such a short car (wheel base wise) should not look so tall.

Re: [Help] Want a Show Car

A big brake kit/rear discs might help fill up the holes in your horrendously big wheels.
