Default Damaged CSL Trunk Corner - Noticeable once fixed?

Hey everyone. I came across a great deal on a OEM CSL trunk painted in jet black. Fedex damaged the trunk corner I assume during shipping. A claim has been submitted and I am waiting to hear back if insurance will cover it.

Regardless, I am going to get it fixed. Will it be noticeable once I do? Obviously that is dependent on the skill level of the shop / fiberglass worker but has anyone experienced anything like this with successful results?

Thanks.

You answered your own question. If the shop is good, you'll never know.

If you have the corner piece that broke off, it'll be A LOT easier for the shop and will look better in the end. If not, then you may notice.

I just had this repair done to both of the corners on my M3 and you cant notice now that they're fixed.

Let me know how it goes. I have a trunk with a similar problem. The CSL trunk is fiber reinforced plastic so I'm not sure what the best way is to add material before sanding it down to the correct shape. I've considered letting a shop clean it up but I'm not sure if this is a typical material to work with. I imagine as long as I explain what it is they can decide if they can handle it. Otherwise I may add material myself and make a template to use to ensure I get the correct shape.

I just made sure to ask each shop if they have a guy who is great at fiberglass type of repairs. One shop told me they want to mount the trunk to get a 100% match to the other corner.
