Default OEM CSL Trunk Repair

Hey guys, I scored an OEM CSL Trunk in a trade but both of the corners are cracked off. I do have the two pieces that cracked off. Is there anyway to repair and reattach the broken fiberglass corners? I understand this is a common problem with shipping these fiberglass trunks. Thanks!

Just epoxy them back, sand, re-paint.

Nope, brand new unpainted. The PO traded it to me because he had a Hamann trunk he liked better.

Will JB weld or epoxy be strong enough to hold though? Not trying to have it installed and painted, and then the first time I go to wash it and dry it with a towel the corners end up cracking lol

Fiber glass and epoxy would make the strongest repair.

I agree. Have the body shop repair it correctly with layers of fiberglass, resin. From there they can also reshape to make the contours correct.
