a junk yard would probably be the easiest place to get the panels but i'm sure a dealer woud have them for the right $$$ as for the tranney i think your ok but you might want to change the differential or even the rear axles depending on what type of "work" your having done and what type of power your expecting

im going to bring it to central florida turbo and have them install a turbo and up the internals hopefully boost it to 400+whp, with $3500. check out some of their cars, centralfloridaturbo.com. also, what would be a good shift kit?

well some people just re-drill the plates in the transmission while others just change the servo for harder quicker shifts. If you have an electronically controlled tranny you can reprogram the shift point as well.BTW if your looking at that much power your gonna definately need a LSD

Auto junkyard would be a good place to look. Or try searching on ebay or online. Im sure there has to be someone out there who sells replacement panels.
