Panels are available from a few places, depends which panels and if you want new or second hand.

Depending on how high a quality restoration your doing as in “like new” or “to be used and abused”.

You can buy new panels from indian suppliers.

Good second hand panels are getting hard to find. Most of us have modified and made our own floor sections.

There are quite a few of us have bought parts from India, not sure if anyone has had body panels yet.

There are quite a few sellers on eBay, other than slightly longer delivery times no one has reported any major issues.

Should be a fun machine for Skye Tony :D
We had a lovely week in Skye/Raasay last october in our 'other car' (2008 Sportage LOL).
Hope you manage to source some useful parts.
