New Jersey (northern) paint chip repair needed

My 911 front bumper was recently painted (black) then today I got a smallish chip from a rock. I sanded, 2000 grit, used touch up paint, let it cure, then sanded with 2500 grit. I was patient and gentle but somehow sanded through the paint to primer!.. I then attempted the touch up process again but it looks terrible. Is there someone in the NNJ area that can repair that area without having to remove the bumper? Which of course would save time and money... and I would also hate to endure that huge production again!
Thanks

The touched up problem area

Under the touch up paint there is a chip and is slightly sanded through. Can this be repaired without having the bumper removed and fully painted?

yes it can but the best way to do it is to just pull the bumper off the car and repair it.

For items that were too big a job for me to handle myself, or that needed better tools and techniques than mine, I've had good luck with Robbie's - the shop with the neon 911 profile on the front right side above the garage bays.

They are on Rt 46E in Dover, NJ.
