It's got to be easier & cheaper to go through your insurance. DIY repairs always seem like a good idea at the time, but invariably involve more cost than you originally thought and more time & more frustration.
How much is your XS? Have you got protected no claims?
As lagdti says, damage may be worse than you thought. Also if car is written off by insurers you will get something for it - it's present state its practically worthless.
