    When I first started removing dents from cars an older wiser body man once told me. "Study the damage, figure out how it occurred, which part happened first and last. Start where the damage occurred last and work toward where it happened first and you'll save yourself a lot of aggravation and stretched metal."

    I've always used this approach with great success. It doesn't matter if it's a little ding or scrape or if the core support is 6" away from the firewall.

    Hope this helps.

    Heck you could have worked that dent out without ever firing up the stud gun.....should have had complete access from the back side.once you pulled the tail light would have been easy and probably not much hammer dolly work ....Jim

    Haven't you heard? Lead is now considered both environmentally and politically incorrect.

    I guess I'll be incorrect!

    To get the radio code you will have to take the radio and the title to a Honda dealer (parts dept) and they can either look it up or call Honda and get it. The reason for all of this BS is to prevent theft. I had an Accord I had to do just that with. The part that ticked me off is when I pulled in the lot I hadn't even got out of my truck yet and they wanted to sell me a new car, then as I was leaving a different salesman (liar) tried the very same thing.

    yea,, i dont even want to deal with a dealership in the correct way, as im not the owner and i have no title,,, im hoping someone here may work for honda and could pm the code,,, so i dont need to do all that...

    in the morning im going to call dealership parts counters and try to sweet talk the code from someone over the phone.

    but im no good at sweet talking due to my abrasive personality.
