Advice on changing the rear panel of an iPhone 3G 8G

Hi, I have an iphone 3g 8gb. The phone works flawlessly, however I have had it for about two years and the rear panel (back cover) is really scratched up. I want to replace it so I can sell it at a higher price. Does Ifixit sell these rear panels ? Also, will I have to buy the rear panel and the Metal Frame(which is this silver cover that goes like sort of on top of the back cover...? Has anyone done this ? How good are these back covers that are selling on ebay ? Thanks.
