2003 Pilot EX-L

Replaced wafers/tumblers 2 years ago and reused old/worn key.
Worked fine.
Stopped working and get worse quickly.
Doesn't start now.

Taking switch out and replacing wafers again.

Would like to try to get at least one new Key this time.

Seems OEM is 65 + programming.
I have 3 keys (all worn?) so wouldn't mind salvaging/ harvesting the old transponders which I've seen some writeups on.

Anyone have any luck with newer cases that split and reused.

Wouldn't mind going with a newer style like the 05-08 1-piece fobs if have to change anyway.

Any reason this wouldn't work?

Thanks

Should be good. Just transplant your fobs, carefully dig out your immobilizer chips and stick them in the new housings (I used a small amount of sticky blue tack to keep them in place), and call ahead to find a locksmith who cuts Honda automotive keys. Worked for me.
