    I have heard of different ways of filling it in... nail polish was one... Do a search you should be able to find something..

    Try filling up the scratch with Krazyglue or some sort of super glue then use one of those nail file stick things that chicks use to file their nails to sand it down to be flush with the stanchion (basically really fine sand paper)

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Yeah, try filling it with clear nail polish and sanding it (carefully!) with 400-600 grit sandpaper. It's worked for me before.
