I think I know of the crx project you're talking about. The thread is somewhere on here; I've seen it and it's really cool.
Definitely go with the Accord headlights, they're your best bet. 86-89 are the years you're looking for. 3rd gen Preludes are practically the same. I got my hands on a 86 Lx-i HB; the headlights almost made me drool. I sat for 5 minutes pressing the button making them go up, then down, then up, then down, up, down, up, down.
I got a new shell, just need to stop driving the DX so I can work on it.
I've got a filter for my mouth, it just isn't a good one.
