Since the car still drives pretty well, sounds like the damage is limited to the door, side sills, and floor pan. The door should be replaced, but the sill and floor pan might be repairable without removing them. (Removal could be problematic since they're likely welded to the x-bone.)

I think you should go ahead and try to get it fixed.
Ive never seen these pics before. Do you work for Honda?

these pics (and more) have been floating around the internet since day one. google s2000 x-bone frame and go to the images section and you'll see more.

Appreciate all the help!

Car is at a the best shop in the area, initial estimates are 10-12k worth of damage, which just barely isn't enough to total the car. From the info at hand my gut feeling still gives it about a 50/50 shot.

see if the shop is willing to take pictures of the repair process.

there's a shop here that does that with all the cars they fix, and they give you those pictures.

if you get them, please post!
