Marc,

The scratches are a non-issue.

The dimple is a potentially catastrophic one. Fairing it with JB weld is at best a cosmetic fix to a structual problem. It needs to be brought back to true, then a standard compression tube added. Nylon is not acceptable here, think aluminium or titanium (stainless if you have too).
