Can you repair a cracked carbon fiber trunk?

Got rear ended by a semi and my CSL trunk has a crack on top, is it possible to repair instead of replacing the whole thing?

Yes although I must state it will never look right again, and also the structural integrity has already been compromised.

Structural integrity wise, it can be repaired. but the aesthetic side of the repair woudln't beso easy to obtain to make it look like it was before the damage... depending on the location of the damage and how severe it is it may be able to get repaired where its not so obvious or it may not be even worth it on trying to repair it.
