Default Duplicate key

I have the shell and blank (ebay) for a duplicate key for my 2003 Honda Accord EX. Can I get someone to "cut/grind" the blank and them use the electonics from the original key? Thanks

So you don't want it as a spare? Just open it up, take the keys out and bring them to a hardware store, transfer the transponder chip that sits in the middle of the key and the electronics over.

Default Duplicate key

The problem is finding someone to grind the blank other than a Honda Dealer. I live between Rochester and Syracuse NY. Haven't found anyone locally yet. Pic below is of the new shell/blank (left) and the old key in parts (right). It will still start the car but flimsy. I do have an identical backup key that came with the car as well as a valet key. So nothing urgent, but would like to fix it. Thanks.Click the image to open in full size.
