Rust around my hatchback key hole

Hey guy’s, I just bought my teg in sep. and ive done alittle work on the body, but i have alittle rust around my key hole for my hatchback. I don’t think I’ll be ablt to work around the key hole, so I was playing on just shaving it all? Let me know if anybody has tried it, thanks a bunch guys:)

i think shaving it would make it look cleaner. u have the puller on the driver seat anyways. so its not too bad. go for it. i wanna do it too, cuz i have rust as well.

Yeah it would look alot cleaner, and like you said I won’t be digging myself into a hole cause I still hafe the lever next to my seat. How hard do you think it would be to cut that bad boy outta there?
