Are there any open collections on your report?  Most late pays stop reflecting after two years or so.  If there are collections offer pay for deletion but make sure you have the moeny to back up the offer and get any agreements in writing

Re: help with my score

Try sending GW letters to the lenders and explain the situation and see if they will delete the late payments. Will only cost you a stamp and a little bit of your time.
