Hey, guys. I have a problem with a "list" on the drivers door on my A3 2006-model. It has, by the former owner been replaced, but didn't get repainted. Somehow over the years it has also become bent on the edge, probably because of ice. I have no experience with bodywork and therefore I don't have any clue on how to straight out the edge which has become bent. Does some of you have an idea on how this can be done?
I have no experience with painting, however I have viewed several videos and "tutorials" on how the process is done. However, should I go to my local mechanic to remove the list and paint it, and get them to attach it again? Or could I just simply mask of areas and paint it?
Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks!
