One typically fills in chips and dings in gelcoat with gelcoat. I wouldn't use bondo, nor would I use any other type of filler like that unless I were going to paint. Gelcoat is about the only thing that you can use to blend right in with other gelcoat (and indeed, there's no reason not to use gelcoat).

Here is a link to an article explaining the process (geared towards boats but there is no practical difference):


I also see that there are some "gelcoat repair" videos on You Tube, but I can't watch them on this computer, so I can't recommend or "un recommend" them.
