How big of a repair job would this damage be?

I've been looking at a Z to purchase and came across this one. How much would repairing this approximately cost at a shop? Looks like its mostly body work damage but not sure. I'm located in SoCal if that helps with better input from others.

You will have to inspect the front part of the uni-body for damage, but it looks as if most of it is bolt-on.

Fender, hood, headlight bucket, headlight assembly. front valance, turn signal, grille, bumper mount, bumper, etc.,

Depends on the shop but you're probably looking $3000 - $5000 to have just repairs done, parts replaced. (IF there's no additional frame damage under there... Someone needs to pull that fender and really look at the unibody)

You should have the whole car painted at the same time = more $$ than that... Need to find replacement parts for hood, fender - they'll cost more to repair than a finding replacement (the hood is beyond repair by any sensible measure). Then of course it's also missing quite a few front end pieces - some could be ignored if you used an aftermarket air dam instead of the stock lower valence pieces. I probably have most of the parts you would need - if you wanted to drive to Phoenix. Unless it's a ****-of-a-deal, you should probably keep looking if you can't do much of the work yourself.
