I wouldn`t do conventional honing on the Lokasil bore. I did it in my 99 engine but in retrospect it probably wasn`t a good idea. Your bores seem damaged because of the pistons seized in the bores due to the lack of lubrication. What do your pistons look like? The bores allegedly can be reconditioned to some extent with the Sunnen AN-30 compound, some people had good results with it. I`ve never tried it. The problem with this in your case is that the pistons have a ferrous/iron coating which may have been damaged because of the seizing. This may lead to aluminum-to-aluminum (since the bore itself is is Al-Sil) contact and subsequent seizing. If you have plenty of time you may try, I`d be very curious to see how it turns out. You may end up wasting your time though.

You may consider Nickel Silicon Carbide plating, $750/bank.
