Quick update: they calculated the value of the car (pre-accident) at $4000 which I thought pretty fair considering I paid $1800 for it. This meant I could get a decent settlement without totaling the car and having to buy it back with a salvage title.

They paid me $2980 for the damages (basically just under 75% of the ACV). For that amount I'll need to find used body parts. I should be able to track down at least a good used fender.

The rear valence may be easier to hammer out than replace, not sure. It appears to be part of the unibody?
