Hello - This is LuLu on the day I got her, 2001 GLS, 2.0 5 speed. Hubby gave her to me for Christmas!! Who said girls need diamonds? Give this gal a NB any day! :)



The begining of the Daisy Makeover. I got the flower rims for Valentine's Day. The kids got me the pink steering wheel cover and neon flowers for Christmas so they of course had to go on!!! I upsized my tires from 205/55R16 to 215/60R16. That's raised her up about 2 inches (better for these Ohio winters). Mechanicaly she runs like a champ. We did do radiator, engine and oil system flushes (we own an auto shop).



I ordered my new custom license plate DAISSY yesterday! There's stickers and seatcovers and lots more coming for her. I'm gonna flower her out in white and pink daisies with yellow centers. I'll post as I go along.

Thanks,
Stephanie

Looks like you've been bitten by the "modding bug" already and it had paid off. LuLu is looking good Stephanie!

Thank you :) I just love her! I've been on a shopping spree this past week and have everything from a meep meep horn to valve caps to dash accents coming. It's gonna be like Christmas every day when the mail comes!!! :D Hubby has instructions to make me a flower shaped tail pipe tip! How long do you think I'll wait on that! lol She's got a few mechanical issues that need done. Struts are a definate must and new wires cuz she sure doesn't like it when it rains.

I'll post pictures as I go. Hopefully it'll warm up a bit so I can get a good waxing on her.

The flower shaped exhaust sounds cute!

I've got the hello kitty exhaust tip :) Love it!

I've seen the heart shaped ones too online.

LuLu got her new meep meep horn today!! It is so cool and so loud! I'm amazed how loud it actually is!!

I've got the seat covers in and they look awesome! Wish I had held off on the new floor mats till after winter but they looked good before the mud :(. Hopefully they'll clean up :(. New white valve stem caps went on too and the flower tail light covers. I haven't snapped any pictures yet but will post when I do. :)

Finally snapped a few new pictures of DaissyLu. She got her new taillight covers and eyelids and eyelashes. I DID NOT pick out the eyelashes...my hubby did :cool: Not sure I like them but it does look cute! ;) Peeled lots of double sided tape to make sure they'll stay on, especially through the car wash. My graphic guy is going to get my side graphics done right after race season starts. Can't wait to get those on!!!




This is a picture my daughter snapped as we were driving down the road...I thought it was SOOOO cool!! :D

Daissy's Stickers

I finally got some pink, white and yellow vinyl to do the stickers for DaissyLu. They're not done yet, need some more random daisys and she still needs the back done. Love the scroll and flowers on the top of the windows!!! I couldn't get my race car guy to do my NB so I ended up doing it myself. Designed the scrolls and flowers. I like the flowers that they're not all uniforms, kinda wonky :) Not loving the pink eyelashes behind the black but my 13 year old daughter went nuts over them and begged me to put them on. They'll come off next time I wash her and go back to just the black.





I love my NB!! I live in a small town and get comments on her every day. People snap pictures of her to show their friends! Gotta love it :)
