Nah, glass and epoxy. Actually, the first time I used epoxy was more than thirty years ago, backpacking as a student around the islands of the Aegean. I remember using Araldit and strips of cloth off my shirt to repair the busted aluminum frame of my backpack.
Seriously now, what would a plane in this condition go for? I'm tempted to join forces with someone interested in the engine, if the ground strike hasn't destroyed it, while I could use the avionics stack.

...

Bent firewall, bent engine mount most likely, bent nose gear (attached to firewall), broken wings, prop strike, wing attaches are done for.... The avionics should be fine, the gyros might have some issues, the engine would be questionable, the prop is trash.

That is actually pretty banged up for actually having made the runway.

the cost of the parts alone will exceed the value of the plane even if you don't pay for labor and the plane. ask the guy in the hanger next to mine.

curious... why can't I find this tail number in the NTSB accident database?

It is quite possibly classed as an incident... assuming noone was injured... which means it will be in the FAA incident database, not in the NTSB database.

Database

The FAA is a bit slower at filing the reports.
