Does anyone know if there's any way to use Honda Prelude 5th gen headlights in a 6 gen Honda Accord. I'm assuming I will need to use the fenders, hood, and bumper off the Prelude but will they bolt straight on?
I have never seen anyone do it before but I think it would look really cool and get a very NSX type look.

why is it not possible? Would the fenders not meet up with the doors?
I know that the Prelude is built off the Accord platform.
So why couldn't you interchange body panels?

Its been done.. I seen it, the guy used all front end parts of the lude including the hood. He cut the fenders in half and used the front half of the lude, rear half of the accord and welded them together.

I found it a few years ago it was not this site I think it was hondatech. Ill see what I can find he had a build thread for it. Personally if you were going to do a front end swap I think the jdm euro r swap or even a tl swap would look better
