if its not to bad you can get some nail varnish and layer it up the sand down with some very weak sand paper theres a guide in BR somewhere although not sure if it will work on chips

When you say dropped, do you mean out of the van or you crashed whilst riding? If its a small one it should be fine, its only if oil starts leaking back up past it on the rebound that you have worries although the above guides are probably a good idea
