Hi guys. I don't know why it's taken me forever to get on this forum but here I am and here's the story of Daisy (I don't mind if you skip all this jabber and move onto the pictures :P)

I received this rusty heap in 2006. It was my boyfriends token of love to me. He bought it from the original owner in the South Bay. She was a little old lady who had it sitting in the back yard. The wheel well had nests in it! I'd never seen anything like it. She is a 1970 Honda AN600.
Image

In the spring of 2007 we decided to do something with it. We started to strip it.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Since there was SOOOOOOOOOOOO much rust, Tommy felt it needed a bath in some acid.
Image
Image

Here she is getting set to go
Image

He's really strong :wink:
Image

OMG.. after it had it's bath, we found out that the acid may have compromised the glue that was used to attach certain pieces of the car together. :shock:
Image
Image

Off to get 6 point cage. And while she's at it... stitch her up!
Image

He's awesome and I love what he did to my girl!
Image
Image

I had been eyeballing paint colors for awhile and wanted a color that popped. But, it had to be cute! Baby Pink with flakes did not go over well with Tommy :cry: Mellow Yellow was it...
Image
Image
Image

Some Cosmics for my little lady..
Image

Had the seats reupholstered...
Image

Put it all back together...
Image
Image

and that, my friends, is how Daisy came to be.

Her first show was JCCS 2007. She was not totally completed; just needed the badges and vents to be refurbished/cleaned/etc.

We got to meet J Leno.
Image
I was interviewed for Car Crazy and was featured too!
Image
Daisy earned the Merciless Mings Award!
Image
It was great for being our first show!
Image
Thanks for coming along for the ride... see you on the streets!
Don't forget to wave :)

Welcome to JNC. I'm glad you went with the light yellow instead of pink!

To be honest, I didn't want the cage at all. I wanted to keep it original. But for safety reasons and the acid dip, I didn't have a choice. Mikey, (the guy who did the metalwork) did such an AWESOME job using smaller tubes for the cage... most people don't notice or realize I have a cage. And it's painted yellow as well, so it blends nicely :) compromise... it's not always easy :roll:

Thanks for the warm welcome! Look forward to meeting ya'll at JCCS!
