Default Help With 88 Honda Accord

Hello all!

I just bought an 88 Honda Accord today. When I inspected the car, I found only one problem with it: the clutch seemed to be slipping a bit. I thought, "no problem ... drive her home, buy a clutch kit, work on it, done". However, as I was driving her home, it didn't seem like the clutch was slipping, as it was slipping only in first, and a little in second gear, and I took a rather large hill, going 120km/h, with her in fifth gear and she didn't slip at all.

About 25Km into the trip I heard a "kachunk" noise from under the hood, and then she was slipping hardcore, and roughly. I pulled over. As I walked up, I could see she was leaking some type of fluid. Popped the hood open and saw:

Horror of horrors! I'm guessing that's the transmission that has the lovely gaping hole in it, can anyone here confirm?

So talking repair costs now, I'm assuming I will have to get a new transmission, and possibly the clutch too. I had originally thought that just the clutch was slipping, but if the transmission was dying, the clutch could (theoretically) engage just fine, but that wouldn't make a difference if the system was failing at the next point ...

Does anyone know a good place to get replacement parts for my honda? Should I attempt this repair on my own or take it to a shop? (I'm guessing the parts are cheap enough, but labour would be mondo expensive)
