Default need advice

My son was driving back to college last Sunday evening when he hit a deer. He was driving a 2001 Honda Accord EX. The front passenger side was fairly banged up but I was actually able to drive the car out of the ditch and onto a tow dolly.

Using Edmunds TMV calculator the Honda Accord with present mileage and condition is worth ??? ($2,935-cost of parts needed to restore) using the "damaged" calculation.
If it had not been damaged it would have been worth $4,131.00 (private party)

I took all the damage parts out so I could estimate the parts needed.
So far it appears I need the following:
1) Windshield ($250)
2) Passenger Front tire (Will be covered under Discount tire warranty)
3) Front bumper cover ($$ @ junkyard)
4) Passenger Fender ($60 on ebay)
5) Bumper retainer - passenger side ($20 on ebay)
6) Hood ($$ @ junkyard)
7) Radiator core support ($50 on ebay)
9) passenger headlight assembly ($50 on Ebay)
9) Hood latch ($25 on ebay)
10) battery (covered under Autozone warranty)
11) Radiator ($$ @ junkyard)
12) Radiator fans assemblies (both) ($$ @ junkyard)
13) A/C Condensor ($160 at autoparts store)
14) A/C system recharge ($$)
15) Air filter housing ($$ @ junkyard)

I might be able to do all the work myself (since I didn't have comprehensive coverage) except the radiator core support seems to be part of the front frame and is bent severely.

I'm wondering should I part the car out or try to restore to original condition?
