Honda Accord repainted in Sonic Grey shade looks sporty [Video]

Honda had offered several good looking cars in the Indian market in the past and their premium sedan Accord was one such model. Even today, previous generation Honda Accord has a lot of fan following. There are several examples of well kept and neatly modified Honda Accord in India and we have featured many of them on our website as well. Here we have a video where a previous generation Honda Accord sedan has been completely repainted in Honda’s Sonic Grey shade and gets customised interior as well.

The video has been uploaded by Autorounders on their YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger shows how an old Honda Accord was neatly restored and repainted. Video shows condition of the car when it had arrived at the workshop. The original colour of the Accord was Black. It was brilliant shade of the Accord sedan. Over the years, the Black colour had lost its shine and many of the panels were also broken. Both front and rear bumper had several scratches and has several broken bits on it.

The car then stripped down at the workshop. The headlamps, front and rear bumper, grille and tail lamps were all taken down. All the chrome elements that were present in the stock car were also either removed of blacked out. Once the panels were removed, the dents on the body were corrected using dent puller machine. After the dents were straightened, the surface was sanded and the whole car got a thin coat of a putty to get an even finish. Excess putty was later removed using the sanding process. Once than was done, the car taken to the paint booth. body panels like bumper were painted separately.

The vlogger mentions that this is a very unique shade of grey and Honda offers this shade in the sportier version of Accord in international markets. After the base coat was applied, the whole car was painted in the Sonic Grey shade. This gave the car a very distinct look. It is probably the only Honda Accord in the country to get this shade of paint. The front grille was replaced and is now completely blacked out.

Similarly the stock headlamps are replaced with aftermarket units. The door handles  and ORVMs were also blacked out. The alloy wheels remain the same. The silver colour stock alloy wheels on the Accord were painted in black and the calipers were finished in blue. As we move to the rear, the tail lamps have been replaced with aftermarket units as well. Along with the exterior, interior of this Accord was also customised.

It now gets a tan and black interior which looks premium. The car gets gloss garnishes on the dashboard which replaced the wooden trims. There are leather padding on the door and the steering wheel. The owner of this sedan had already installed an aftermarket touchscreen infotainment system. This has been retained and in addition to that the car gets ambient lights as well. The roof liner has been replaced and it now comes with galaxy starlight roof. The work done on this Accord looks fantastic and the car is definitely a crowd puller.
