$10k ish for the car
$4k for the front clip in the same color
$4k in additonal parts - Airbags and stuff
So total right around $20k for a car with 5miles on it and no R title.

Nice work! What did you have to use off the clip besides the body panels? Just the frame rails?

Everything on the front of the car including headlights and body panels.

So rad , rad support , headlights, misc parts, bumper, fogs , driver side fender

Driver side bumper support - you can see it was cut off and then pop rivted and then welded back in place.

Nice to see you're back at it J! Love the Ember Black too.

Yeah it is a sharp wagon , I will see if I can get photos of it this weekend all finished.

The nice thing with having to do no painting with this car was you now cant even tell anything was ever fixed

My understanding is the car was never titled in the first place .

I am not sure how the paper work goes after that .

I do know they have accidents like this with many cars in transporting them over seas and there are full recon / body shops that will fix "shipping issues" with out ever going through a normal insurance agency. The car could be as damaged as this or more and will be fixed and the title will never reflect the damage was done.
