4 wheel steering

Can i take a 2 wheel steering car and convert it to 4ws?? I ask because i just bought my 88 prelude with the knowledge it had been in an accident, i didnt realize the entire passenger side "inner fender" (for lack of a better term) is completely mangled, to the point it is pushed in about an inch. The car drives fine because the Previous owner had the suspension work done but the front valance doesnt fit, cause the front end is an inch narrower!!!
I have the option of buying a 89 prelude form the same person who bought it as a parts car (hasnt been wrecked) but it is only 2ws, so im wondering if i can take everything out of the 88 and put it in the 89 so i dont have a mangled car??? I know it is a lot of work but i really like these cars but want it to look/ be right!!!!
sorry for the book
Thanks
Troy

Main things you need: Both steering racks off the 4ws, distribution shaft and the above guide.

I know some tips as well, so when you are ready, hollah at me.
I almost did this swap myself; Sideswipe Si donated his system to me, but the weather + timing wasn't dealing me the right cards...DAMN!!!

That was the donor car...sideswipe's car...

We removed:
b20a5 head, 4 Koni shocks with GC coilovers, stripped the interior bare, brake components etc. in about 5 hours and started on the 4ws stuff when a freaking stubborn exhaust bolt wouldn't budge due to the angle of the impact gun...it started to get dark real quick and the weather dipped into the 20's...the next day, the tow truck came and we all cried...
