Lets see the combustion chambers. Hopefully you didn't remove the spark plugs, as that'll do in the threads. We typically machine off the end of mangled plugs, so the stock threads remain in-tact.

With the piston top that beat up, I would just look for a used head to drop your internals into. Machining costs for repairing the head will usually be above what you can usually find a used head for.

We can fix the head without any problems, but with the collateral damage in all the other chambers, the expense would be such that you should consider purchasing a replacement head. If the head was a really killer piece with a lot of expensive rework, it'd be worth saving...but it isn't.
