The totals class panel will just regurgitate the data, a gui class will create a panel for the display of the other classes and the controller class will use setters and getters to store and retrieve the data, its just getting them all to work together that I have a problem figuring out.

All data should be separated from your GUI - if I was you I would be taking a look at some design patterns - MVC in particular,
