You ever played with fiberglass?
My concern is any bending or flexing the bumper might do (even a little bit would be bad) going over a pothole that catches you by surprise or on hard turns or when some dillweed thinks it would be a fabulous idea to put his foot up on your bumper (yes...more than one person has started to do so and had me yell "NO" like they were a dog about to pee on the floor. It worked, though...)
Glassing that bumper would be a better route, imo. Not to say he prepped it correctly or that you wouldn't prep yours correctly, but my future sister-in-law's boyfriend tried bondo on the doors of his Camaro until it broke off three times from him and his friends slamming them shut.
Also, with fiberglass you wouldn't have to worry about using too much hardening agent and having it bleed through and bleaching your pretty new paint later. Hell...you may be better off calling some yards and just finding the same color bumper, buying it, and installing it.
