Scratch rear window weather stripping

Was in a hurry the other day and for whatever reason the air compressor I was moving out of storage, I positioned the compressor close to the cab in the bed of the truck. Because I wasn't thinking and didn't strap it down, the first stop light I came too the air compressor leaned forward and a wing nut that holds the air breather on the compressor banged up against the window. I pull over and get out and noticed that the wing nut had not only scratched but more so gouged part of the weather stripping that outlines the rear sliding window. Is there a way to fix this other than replacing the whole thing, some RTV filler or something? 2012 DB TRD by the way, thanks

RTV or anything you fill that with is not going to match the color or texture.

Just ignore it. It's a truck. It sucks, but nobody else is going to even notice that.
