I could be wrong, but if you have an CX/DX car, the wiring harness is different from the LX/EX harness. I'm talking about the interior wiring harness that comes off of the fuse box. Not completely sure if you can just get the wires that plug into the doors and plug them into the fuse box.

^Yep, you need the interior harness. They're a pain to get out of a car but when you do, you'll be laughing. Separate the correct wires out, just like in the write-up you linked to. I wrote a DIY for this also.

Also, you don't need the doors themselves. Unless you really want to paint two sets of doors just swap the guts between then, the door shells themselves are identical (other than the CX/VX has a slightly different channel where the side molding would go)
