Replacing all the burnt stuff in the engine compartment is pretty obvious.

I see the top of the dash is melted. It looks like the dash was melted from heat transferred though the windshield. But what about the wiring and stuff under the dash? What little I can see hanging down doesn't look bad. If the dash wiring is also toasted, you're best bet is to get a Painless Wiring harness and redo the whole car.

Check out the brakes. If the MC got too hot, it will melt the seals in there.

Check out the front suspension. There isn't much that can burn down near the upper A-arms. But if it did, they would have to be replaced before driving.

Metal parts get toasted pretty fast. And that can be a real problem. It looks like a lot of heat was transferred through the windshield into the dash. Check out the firewall very careully. If it got hot enough to deform, you've lost structural integrity through the core of the car. It can be fixed, but it won't be cheap. Either replace it, build a full roll cage, or junk it.
