    1) find out how to remove all of the metal strip under the Audi sin and make a better respray job. ( dose any one no how to do this)

    OR

    2) mask the metal strip and just respray it.

    Edit after viewing images:

    Isnt that part plastic & think you need to open boot, remove the inner trim, then its bolted from the inside I think.

    But I'd tape up the surrounding areas & then grind/rub down that corroded part of & then make sure if its metal any rust etc underneath is treated 1st, then prime then paint & lacquer, find a local chip repairer cause small paint job like that would be fairly cheap tbh & they can do a proper job with right paint code/lacquer.
