You are not going to believe just how expensive all those lower panel items add up to! You could spend a lot of time and easily $500-$1000 doing what you suggest. Also, if you modify it, you will narrow down the field of potential buyers. If you are planning on selling it, unless the seats are torn and need replacing, I would clean it up real nice, maybe repaint the wheels, detail the car, and put the money into any mechanical upgrades it needs before selling. Let the next owner decide on whether they are going to restore it as an unusual model, trick it out as a '95 wannabe, or just drive it as transportation. Do the trick stuff on the next one you plan to keep. If you are really keen to modify it, monotone the bumpers, rocker panels, and side trim for a lot less money and effort. Just an opinion, and good luck!
