That's what I'm thinking too, but I also noticed the piece they welded on was perfectly fine, so that's what's making wonder a bit.
Obviously, that piece could be made of a denser material or something, but who knows?
Yea because the accident is unrelated to the repair.
At some point your damage was repaired in a normal fashion, there's no reason it should not look like a normal fine repair job.
Before or after this repair, someone made a careless mistake and let the base of your board come in contact with something to damage it (i'm guessing a heat gun, but it could also be from leaving an iron on it after the repair).
