Default 1985 Samurai SJ413 - newbie

I have a 1985 Suzuki Samurai that has been garaged for the last 9 years. My son is just getting his drivers license and I am looking at putting it back on the road. Needs quite a bit of body work and I was wondering the following:

1) Where is the best place to find body parts (Rockers, Qtr panels, fenders)
2) Is there any difference between the '85 and '86 model years
3) Is is possible to buy a complete tub and body mount kit (it might be more cost effective to go this way)

Here is the really open question - it has 73,000 Km and has been parked indoors for the past 9 years, no pre-storage prep work was done. What would the big mechanical things should I be on the lookout for.

It has a bit of sentimental value as I bought the car new in '85 and manged to get it back about 10 years ago.

Thanks
