Default STi wrecked - how to proceed from here

Well in my infinite wisdom, I was involved in a single car accident Tuesday.

I should not have been driving on these nearly bald michelin all season tires, however I wanted to get the last bit of miles out of them going back and forth to work.

Long story short, driving to work I was going too fast for conditions, I hit a ditch and rolled, hit a grove of trees, and I did not have collision coverage. My airbags did not deploy. I just started a new career and had to cancel my collision coverage in January to get through a couple months budget. Perfect timing.

The frame/body are destroyed, I think one door is salvageable.

The engine/trans seem to be fine. Intercooler and radiator are done. Interior is mostly fine, at least the front seats and dash seem to be OK. I imagine the electronics are OK.

Car has 75,000 miles on it, and 20,000 miles on the shortblock with forged CP pistons, turboxs exhaust, FP green, Tein Flex (which may or may not be OK), an AEM EMS, walbro fuel pump, injectors, Cobb Short throw, Exedy Twin disc clutch, and the Brembo's look OK.

Should I part this thing out? Buy a rolling chassis and swap over the good parts?

What would the wise man do at this point? Please don't lecture me, as I already know I am a fool. Thanks.
