Definitely interested in seeing your before/after, Morax.
If its a scratch, you might want to see a detailer.
I was somewhat underwhelmed by a shopping cart double scratch about half an inch long. I think it is the sharp boundary typical of a scratch that is the issue, because if you look at it with a rock loupe you can see that it is painted in the scratch, but you can still definitely see it.

If anyone has tried tiny amounts of bondo either in typical chips or scratches, I'd love to know how that worked... as I suspect 1/10th of an ounce of bondo would be a lifetime supply.

May also consider using a metal based epoxy as prefiller to see if it can cling to that---on a TEST piece of metal first.

That epoxy is a good idea, but I'm not sure how well paint will cling to it. I'd be more inclined to stick with a tried-and-true filler, even if you only use 1/32 teaspoon at a time, lol.
The damage is more like a chip about the size of a child's fingernail. It may also have been damage from an amateur trying to break in (locked the keys inside, perhaps?). I don't know. It's down to the metal, though. I'll try to remember to take a picture of it.
