Default Retro(?) DPMS AR-15 - Leave it as is or pimp it?

One of our warehouse grunts brought in this old AR-15 for show and tell... It belongs to a buddy of his who wanted us to trick it out with modern parts. What do you think? Should he leave it as is or pimp it out? If you'd pimp it, what would you do?

kick him in the uterus if he tries to change it. In fact kick him in the face now for even thinking it.

Thanks for the input. The owner is going to leave the rifle as-is and pimp some other more modern gun. (The threat of being kicked in the uterus is what did it.)

That rifle would be very hard to modernize because of the attached carry handle. I think it looks awesome as is.

Leave it! If he wants a pimped out one, that gives him an excuse to go buy another one!
