this car?
unfortunately, that's not even an accord. It's an Ascot.
If you could even source the bodywork, then you could probably find a way to make it fit, but I would say stick with the engine swap.

hmmmm.... wikipedia says that the 98 euro accords are still based on the ascot innova, which in turn is based on a CB chassis not a CD, but I say if you were already willing to drop 800 dollars on a front end, then screw it, go for it. Post a build thread.

I say do it! I'd love to see that happen to a CD chassis.

I know its been done on the 6th gen Accords because their body style is more similar.

It could be done, but it'd all be trial and error on your part. A lot of man hours for sure.

I just read the running gear part of that image, I want the suspension from that ascot in my car! Full double-wishbone on front and rear!
