Once you get the parts off, and get it down to "body shop guys" specifications, take a few more pics before you go ahead and take it to him.

Your no-start issue is probably a ground broken during the accident, once it's taken apart, it will be easier to diagnose wiring, since there are several things in the way right now.

If you're stuck up on the interia switch, remove it from the loop. Hot wire the fuel pump, and see if it kicks. Also, when you're checking for the ground, check the fuel lines, etc.
