    Default Project Reborn 8th Gen Civic 2007

    *Final results, few before & after starting from Post#315 onwards, cost edits at bottom of this very post#1*

    Dear All, I had been looking for a good trouble free car for home use. As always, prices are insane around. Have sold & bought many Reborns. When selling, you don't get a good offer & when buying, you can't find a good car in reasonable price. Repainted cars are also overpriced.

    I'd rather get a scratched faded car which hasn't been earlier repainted instead of buying an already repainted/touched car & God knows what underneath that make up to save money properly if I have to be budget conscious. If you should then save properly & if not then spend without thinking.

    My mind frame was to save money as this will be a run around car for school & market duties.

    I got my hands on a 2007 Oriel Prosmatec with originally 120000 on the clock (as maintainence book is there) almost in original paint with 2 rear pieces sprayed. Interior looks new, apart from detailing required & drive is exactly what a well maintained Reborn should be, a real charm. Everything in perfect working form, from lights to ac to driving experience.

    THE CATCH IS: some paint is faded, scratches/raggar somewhere. In a nutshell it's almost original but dull in looks. I fell for it as price i managed to bargain was unbelievable even by standards of an accidented repaired car

    Will take delivery & immediately give it for bake painting. It's kind of a project car in terms of restoring the looks back to charming.

    Good luck with the project.
    Would love to see the overall outcome.
    The hardest part about moving forward is not looking back.

    Oh yes this color is very unique and was discontinued later on.
    What mods have you planned?

    No mods at all. I plan to bring it back to what it actually was as by Atlas Honda. The few things missing in the car are:
    Original front headrests have been changed to the ugly lcd ones, and previous owner has lost original ones. Have already found an original pair from Bilal Gunj
    Rims have been upgraded to 16" which also i have found an oem set to put back on it
    Side mirrors are standard from hardtop without indicator, retraction is there so will have to get those changed too.

    A true Honda lover can never dislike 2 specific models of Civic today (third model coming soon)
    First one being Dolphin, 95 Civic and next one being Reborn. Soon i bet Civic X will be added to the list.
    To be precise this is my 7th Reborn. Already have a 2010. But this 2007 one is being replaced with my Run around Belta. Even after buying the 9th Gen in October 2012, I didn't sell me 8th Gen 2009 till one year ago because i wanted to keep it till i could. Just wasn't easy to let it go till I really needed to sell it.
