Default locked out... ideas?

hey guys. very long story short, i locked the only ignition key in my gf'* 7th gen civic coupe. all the forums say wedging it bends the frame, and theres a metal sill so i cant slimjim it....

even if i do pry it, the power locks are shot, and the plunger for the locks is really rounded. so im at a loss. i have aaa but i really dont want them to bend the door frame. any ideas are welcome... any ideas on how to pick the locks or break into the trunk? lol.

its a good thing we dont drive it anymore.

Can't say on Honda, but my keys were lost on my 1998 Bravada. All I had to do was go to the GM dealer with my VIN and proof of ownership, and they cut me a new key for $40.00. The cut the key off the VIN.

Call a lock smith. They have picks for that. I have a master set here. Will only take them a moment.
