    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.

    Masha Allah. Immaculate paint job by your Shahid bhai. He surely knows how to paint a car.
    Car is coming back to life slowly.
    And I cannot wait to see the end result.
    As this was one of my favorite model after 95 civic.
    Don't really like the new one. But this 8th gen has something in it.
    The mean, bolder and yet sophisticated look.

    Good luck brother and keep us posted with pictures and if you can maybe videos

    Why don't you get yourself a paint protector or something. I'm not sure what I'm talking about but brand new cars with fresh paint are getting something done from custom wraps to protect their paint. Car looks cool though. Good job.

    I guess you are talking about glass coating.

    Dear All, I am sorry I have not been able to post any updates. The car is absolutely ready after wetsanding and fittings. Now the interior had to be fixed and I wasnt exactly feeling well and energetic enough to get things done today. So with a heavy heart have left the ready car at workshop to collect on Monday evening when the toll taking heat is slightly going away. After that, interior fittings and DVD installation is to be done.

    Everything is done. Even the interior is ready. Steering stitched, DVD speakers lying in the car to be fitted. Just fitting to be done. Exterior fittings already complete.
    Another update regarding paint work, since everybody had been asking me the price, I have paid him 50,000. He totally left the decision to me and that is what i felt like giving him. Dont know if thats much or less.
