Your secured loans will help Tremendously.  Make sure you pull all three CRs and SCOUR them for inaccuracies and dispute anything that isn't right. Re-building is one step in the repair process. So don't just focus on the addition of new TLs... Take steps concurrently to clean up CRs PFD if you can / need to. and send GW letters to those that have been paid prior.
 
Good Luck.
