This should be just basic try to read the documentation of Java :

Baically, this is the problem, because this declared for JFrame :

this.getRootPane().setDefaultButton(b9);
this.getContentPane().add(p1, BorderLayout.CENTER);
this.getContentPane().add(p6, BorderLayout.SOUTH);
this.setResizable(false);
this.setSize(800, 600);
this.setVisible(true);

So remove that and replace that with :

getRootPane().setDefaultButton(b9);
add(p1, BorderLayout.CENTER);
add(p6, BorderLayout.SOUTH);

Hope that helps . . .

Essentially (s)he Told me to create it to JPanel because what we originally have was
JFrame, so basically she needs it to be in JPanel.

Hope that helps . . .

Yes it was basic but it was right under my nose. So was this but when you brought it to my attention I noticed it. Thanks fot the eye opener. Duh so I didn't need the last comment you made.

Thanks for all the help.

        this.setResizable(false);
        this.setSize(800, 600);
        this.setVisible(true);
