I'm planning on doing my radiator swap soon and i"m sure I'll break some fasteners. I've been looking on clipsandfasteners.com and see a lot of Honda fasteners do they have them ridgeline specific or do any of the ones for accords etc fit? Also has anyone ever put together a "fasteners you'll probably need" list with part number etc. I've searched for one but so far no luck.

You can look on some of the online Honda parts lists that have diagrams (like Honda Automotive Parts) and get the Honda part numbers.

IIRC, most of the fasteners used to mount the radiator are steel, with rubber isolation dampeners.

Below are the items I purchased in addition to the radiator for my swap project. These items are for a MY 2008 so yours might be different:

19502-RJE-A01 - hose lower
OL999-9011 - coolant type 2 (I purchase 2 gallons as I also installed a block heater part number for reference: 08T44-SJA-200)

ATF DW1 from Ebay (found cheapest prices on there for a case of 8 I believe)
08200-9008 - ATF DW1

Crush washers for Transmission (I didn't purchase but here's the part numbers)
90441-PK4-000 (24mm) Transmission fill plug washer

Now that's what I'm talkin bout!

Wasn't limiting to just the radiator so this is great thanks!
Have you found any of them that didn't work with the Ridgeline?

Not yet. I used them for the seat back after removing to wire in headset monitors, in the door panels after replacing speakers and dynamat, when removing/replacing door kick panels and around the dash for stereo install. I think I used a couple under the rear seat when I had it out too. The ones I had to purchase separately were the ones on the third brake light panel which I removed when I added an FM antenna. Anymore I don't take the plastic parts off if the temp is below 55deg as fasteners tend to break when cold. That kit has all plastic clips/fasteners. No metal ones. I've noticed Auto Zone usually has a decent collection if you break one or two here and there, but they may not be an exact fit or the same color. While the color usually isn't a problem, the incorrect fit can lead to rattles. That's what prompted me to get the kit.
PS I have way more than I need so if anyone needs one or two here or there just ask.

I wound up ordering a very similar package off of Amazon. I don't have an ebay account and didn't really want to set one up as I never by anything there.

Thanks for the help though I never found these when searching on my own.

Here is what I ordered:

Swordfish 60220 418pc Auto Body Interior and Exterior Retainer Fastener Clip Assortment for Honda

It was more expensive than the Goliath one but not much. I compared the fastener images and they all pretty much matched.

There are several different sized kits on Amazon by Swordfish. Since we have 3 Honda's, I got got a large assortment.

Another thing I learned is searching for "Honda Acura Fastener" or "Honda Acura retaining clip" in a web search engine returned a lot of sites that sell these type kits.

Finding the metal fold over style clips was a bit harder but I found The Fastener Warehouse Has some good assortments. I'm not sure exactly which ones we would use but it might be worth having a few. If you use them read the Ordering Information Page Their Shopping cart doesn't figure shipping and the shipping costs are listed there.
