Small update:

Here's the latest:

The insurance company ( State Farm)had an independent appraiser out to have a look at the car as part of the likelihood the. Wanting total the car.

While I do not understand or agree with the result of the appraiser, it is the first elaborate and decent approach to setting a value on a car like this.

Now the next hurtle is making the insurance co understand that one cannot simply paint the rear end of this car, for two reasons, first, this color cannot be blended or matched. Two, the body work on the car involves everything excluding the hood and the front bumper and valance. I believe just looking at the pictures of the car is enough to understand the extent of what is required.
Carlos, the shop owner has been great to work with, and so far I can only recommend his shop, Dell autobody, is you happen to end up in a situation like this. I'll keep you posted on how they perform, so far it is very promising.
Here are a couple of pics that shows what kind of shop it is:
