    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.

    Default Project Reborn 8th Gen Civic 2007

    Mostly dealer cars were available and dealers don't spend an extra single penny for quality work. The remaining ones available people had at home were either purchased already from a dealer OR the private sellers since mostly not having proper knowledge had gotten stuff done from juggaarias already.

    Bro still recovering from the minor kind of heat stroke (heat exhaustion) episodes that took place. A bit casual and relaxed. For the proper photoshoot I have to get it yet detailed from Ahmad bhai, as after the workshops so called safaayian even I myself haven't been able to pamper the car and atleast wax it. So Insha Allah upon completing my rest and relaxation period for a month (which ends after Eid) I will get it detailed or do my amateur efforts at a diy detailing sort of session atleast and meet up with @incognito59 who has kindly offered me a shoot.

    Highly obliged Sir.
    The thing is: 8th Gen is one of the most beautiful models from Honda alongside 86 Accord, 92-95 Civic, Accord CL9 and in my opinion the latest 10th Gen Civic.
    A car of these genes such as the 8th Gen Civic deserve respect rather than people abusing them and their condition letting deteriorate day by day pushing them towards the scrap like appearance. It hurts me to see people doing JUGAARS with their Reborns. And this car was a victim of visual carelessness. Why can't people spend an extra buck to increase the life of a car but rather send it into deteriorating health every passing day. In the longer run such things pay off.
    Thankfully the JUGAARS and carelessness on this car were restricted mainly to the body. A lot of people extend the JUGAARS to mechanical and suspension work. I was surprised to know when I took it for mechanical maintainence and I found out that the fuel filter was replaced already, throttle and tuning had already been performed and no periodic maintainence was required apart from Oil change and a set of new rear bearings.
    But people please respect your cars, they serve you and deserve to look acceptable.

    That is precisely the reason I didn't get it done from any of the so called reputed Company 3S workshop

    Ma shaa Allah best project done
    Really love this 8th gen Civic i hope someday i can also upgrade from 7th gen to 8th gen civic!
    btw I have a question, when a car is fully painted doesn't it decrease its values a lot. I mean as long as you are using its fine when you are going to sell it, it will give loss?

    Yes it does decrease value on resale. But so what if it will after a few years. At least I will enjoy a good looking car.
    By the way yesterday I was offered 12 for this car. A relative's friend saw it and knew what all has been done. Started from 11.50 and at the end tried to convince me for 12. I had to politely tell him: Sorry bhai jaan not for sale in the first place.
    But like I have spent my personal efforts and used oem parts I don't plan to sell it soon I.A
    Have been through all this to keep it. Not done chalaoo kaam like dealers and investors do.

    The way someone keeps their car reflects their personality.
