In Texas, it probably the same everywhere, you can't have a hole in the brake lens. I had one about the size of a quarter were I backed the car into my bicycle handlebar. I found a red lens and super-glued it over the hole. They saw it but said it was fine. I think the rest of the stuff should be OK. I'm sure someone from CA and chime in on the rest.

Cops can and sometimes will bust you for a broken taillight, but now that it's a $115 processing fee or some BS even if you fix it in a certain time frame, they tend to be laid back and let it go. I'm guessing they won't give you trouble so long as nothing's broken, they (dmv/chp) can't tag you for dents and such. Just make sure the headlights are aimed properly, and I think you'll be fine.

The fine if pulled-over can be $115, but the inspections (vary by State) are generally around $30. Just make sure you don't have any exposed rust with sharp edges -- they like to fail people on that too. I was failed in MO for an exhaust leak in the TL about 3 months ago -- I patched it up and it was fine. It all depends on the shop you take it to (unless the State does it).

EDIT: I forgot about California Emissions laws -- is that going to be a problem???

Oh, salvage inspection is $50 provided it was a total loss. I think you also need to get a 1 day permit to take it on state streets if it hasn't been registered which is like $20 iirc, unless it's completely trailered of course. You'll also probably have to smog it.

its been smogged, all they asked for was a brake and light inspection, Im gunna borrow my cousin's CRX tail light just to be safe and Im gunna ask if it will pass, they probably charge to tell me but its probably free to get it re-inspected
