/ scratched stanchions
Its not so much that you'll destroy the seals more that the forks may leak- I have a small scratch that has had no obvious effect on performance.
as a frequent faller off bikes i have a few scratches on the stanchions of my fox talas forks...my immediate reaction on my first spill was to panic, send them to mojo's and spend some cash...but a little wet and dry paper and some nail polish does the trick, take your time and build the layers. I found that the better quality (more expensive) polish works best, so Chanel all the way!
A bike magazine a while ago, maybe MBR, had an article on how to repair these scratches.
It recommended cleaning out the scratches, filling them with Araldite and sanding them smooth.
