    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.

    Slight delay in the final paint. Wetsanding of primer was to be done today and car was going in the booth tomorrow. But the painter had a death in family so wetsanding will be done tomorrow and paint on Thursday.

    If I was to sell my car which I will in the coming months, I can't lower the price to 10,00,000. That would be just too low for a car I've taken care of so much and loved so much.

    Driven it up and down Karachi Islamabad many times with civic being the only Honda between all corollas going up country . Don't know why I don't see any civics on the national highway or maybe a very limited amount of them are going such distances anyway.

    I know some people might think it's very overpriced but the most important thing is under the hood and it's in pristine condition. Scratches and all are something one cannot escape in Karachi.

    Anyways that would be my reason for selling it at a jacked up price. Have seen many other Reborns, 2009,2010 and all, don't even come close to how I've maintained it. Other good drivers and Honda lovers would have too but I'm one of them, safe to say.

    Sir very right about the market. A 2009 will not sell as a 2012. At the end, market has to be followed while selling.
    But luckily in my project car case though, doesn't matter how much it will sell for after a few years. I just want a car that looks great to ride and good to drive. So it was pointless overspending for this purpose when a car will be doing domestic duty runs.

    Since car was idle today with the painter gone at a death in family. Took it for an oil change and brake pad service to save time. Previous owner had installed spacers so got them removed.
    Seats too have been removed today for fitted poshish stitching in matching beige leatherite.
