Any Suggestions? What hood details look good on 2000 mustang v6 convertible?

I have a white 2000 mustang v6 convertible with a black top. I have had it since about 2004. For the past 3 years it has been sitting up outside neglected at my parents home while I was away at school. The factory paint has peeled off like crazy. Since I have graduated and the title is now in my name, I would like to make my car look nice again. I refuse to drive it in its current state. It is such an eye soar.

Well, my dad's friend said that he would paint it for about $1000 for all over color and any other details like stripes. Im having a hard time finding examples of hood details that look good with the factory hood and front bumper. Do you guys have any suggestions with picture examples? Id appreciate any other options on what to do with it for the side as well.

The only thing I am sure of is that I want a color very similar to camaro synergy green.

Thanks

My apologies for the grossly misspelled word. I don't know what I was thinking when I typed that, but i'm no english major. I think I'll keep the name of my alma mater to myself.

Also when I was referring to hood details , im talking about hood overall. I find that Im not really a fan of the "hood decal" that fit in the indented area. That's what my dad suggested but im not liking it. I will totally check out that site though.

If it were mine I'd just get a factory 01-04 GT hoodscoop on there and call it done. Not really a fan of any stripes, decals, graphics or custom airbrushed skulls or black wheels or big 'look at me' spoilers. Less is more on this body style.

I was gonna suggest something real classy and understated, like a giant anime ninja or some sh*t.

If that doesn't just scream 'classy and understated', then all hope for this world is lost.

I actually do like the adding a hood scoop idea, but im not the one paying for it. If I truly had a cent to my name, I would totally purchase one and get it installed. Roughly how much does it usually cost to add one of those things?

I've not had to purchase one myself since my car came with one from the factory, but I wanna say they're less than $100, and a pretty simple diy install. The most expensive part is having it painted to match your car but since you're getting a paintjob anyway then that's not really an issue anymore. Check over at americanmuscle.com, pretty sure they sell them.

I am pretty sure what I poster above ^^^^
is a link to HOODS, HOOD SCOOPS, and HOOD DECALS all of which probably include prices and instructions.

With that color MAYBE have the Hood Scoop painted flat black..

Check this one out, not the same color but some photoshop can make it close:
