    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.

    Well thanks a lot for the patience of going through it Sir.

    If it was me reading, to be honest usually I'd get bored after a few pages and would like to jump between before and after images only. That's why I edited post numbers as well in opening post keeping people like myself in mind

    Default Project Reborn 8th Gen Civic 2007

    The Right side windscreen shield was damaged along with the drip moulding assembly which runs from screen bottom till the end of roof. So got them changed to take it off my head. Ordered from Honda since fake ones never fit.

    Question! I am planning to go for the 16s OEM Wheels. Will this effect the suspension in anyway?, and is it safe to change? or shall i stick to the original 15s Wheels?. And If i go for what is the best Tyre size? Thanks in advance.

    Ideal tyre size with 16 would be
    205/55-16 (0.4% smaller dia) or
    205/60-16 (1.3% bigger dia) or
    215/55-16 or (1.2% bigger dia)

    On highways and flat roads it will get better, though steering will feel slightly tiny bit heavier. Suspension depends on your usage. If you have to use it in too many potholes/khaddas heavy cat eyes and rough surfaces that will be a drawback. If you have to use it on clean roads not much problems. Occasional roughness can be tolerated with slow speeds. Fuel average may be slightly compromised. If at all you really want to do it, try going for original oem rims that come in Honda's imported models. And most importantly the tyre will also make a lot of difference. A harder tyre on this bigger rim will be harmful but if you go for softer tyres specifically something like Yokohama Advan DB, then it's not much of a problem.

    I personally have used 205/60R16 setup back in from 2006-2012 and it worked it a charm. The looks and drive were absolutely fine with this setup. Now, i suggest you either go for 205/60R16 or 215/55R16.

    Very true. Rather 205/ 60 R 16 is the best for our roads and economy.

    They used to look nice somewhere in the past, Once Upon A Time. Not anymore. Nothing beats the Oem 16 Rim on Reborn and the Oem 17 CL9 rims.

    Thanks man! Actually we bought this silver one brand new back in 2007. Then again got a reborn in 2011 in white which we currently have. Just last year my father got the 9th generation oriel so we were left with three cars whereas we only need two in the house. So eventually had to sell one of the reborns so naturally sold the older one of the two reborns. I hope its clear now😀

    Here is mine with 205/55R16 Yokohama Advan DBs. These rims (Lenso) were already installed when I bought it, I just changed the tires from Nankang to Yokohama (size was always the same). Compared to other Reborns with stock tires, which I have sat in, I would say these tires are as quiet as they get, although in my opinion they are a bit harder than the stock 195/65R15 - on rough roads, potholes and cat eyes certainly. As far as high speed driving in concerned, in my opinion if you go with rims that have a greater offset than stock (i.e. farther apart from the center of the car) the 'center' of the steering seems less stronger and there is greater urge on the steering to pull side-to-side, especially on road undulations.
