Rimowa repair
 
https://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.fly...51c858ecbb.jpg
After a Jetblue flight, my Rimowa Limbo arrived on the conveyor with a bashed in corner. Looks like it was dropped off the aircraft belt. The dent is probably 2 inches deep. It doesn't appear that the poly was broken. I contacted B6 at the airport (FLL) and am awaiting their next steps

My question is Is this fixable? And, if so, who should fix it? Their designated repair or should I insist on Rimowa in Miami?

Since the frame is polycarbonate, you can try to pour hot water over that area and push the dent back out to fill the frame.

Similar concept to an indent in a car bumper.

I did send this to the B6 repair partner in Dallas. They deemed it unrepairable. The dent and also a misaligned hinge

they are replacing it with the current Rimowa product

Serious hit, I must say. It seems to me that it can be repaired if you cut out the damaged part and print a new one on a 3D printer. Anisoprinting (сontinuous fiber 3D printing) should be perfect for this task.

Take it to any Rimowa repair center. If there is one thing Rimowa still does right its repairs, ( to point) . Alsandre and his dad would have lost my business if they killed that

Was it still under warranty? Lucky you regardless.
