Default Help fixing a shorted lipo

A friend crossed polarity on a Orion 3200 7.4 lipo tonite and it does not work now.I brought it home with intentions to try and fix it for him.As i seperated the case each cell stayed in it's own half and i am afraid to try and pull it apart any further in fear of damaging one of the cells.I can see a tab on the + positive side that has been burnt/shorted and i think if i could get these two halves apart a little further i might be able to operate on this battery.First of all,is it just a matter of resoldering that tab back where it goes or what ?.Someone told me last week to contact them if this ever happened,but i forget who it was.

Most lipoly cells have aluminum tabs that are welded together. You can solder it, but you need special solder. Good luck and keep a fire extinguisher handy.
