If he's just got paperwork, it must go through an in depth inspection, after which the mechanic must sign the salvage certificate, and send it, with his report, to the DOT in your state, who will then issue an R title on his recommendation.

I take it that R means Reconstructed

and thanks, Ive really learned a lot from this thread

I've bought salvage title cars before, they were fixed right, and drove just as good, well almost for half the price. What I tell people is if you want to buy a salvage car I would only recommend it if you find one for half the retail and if you're planning on keeping the car for long time, other wise it's not worth it. Btw my current car has a salvage title, it's a 2000 mustang 3.8 v6, I bought it 3 years ago with 35xxx miles for $1500. It runs like a champ
