Dude, keep it up! Did you remove the tape and sand down the edges to form a cavity for the paint to fill? Also don't be afraid to take your time and let the paint slowly fill the cavity, thin layers at a time. The finished product won't be perfect but should still be better than what you started with and help buy time until you get the Euro bumper (my plan or just fill reflectors and do a whole respray).
