Mnaged to rip of small pieces of paint...

I painted the 1/4 panel of my car last night.
Today as I was removing the mask paper, I pulled the tape around the gas tank door and tail light too fast and managed to rip 3 smalll pieces of paint, each about 0.3x02 inches. 2 around the fuel tank door and 1 around the taillight.
I didn't notice it until I was done

So I used the touch up paint that I got from BMW couple of months ago and covered those areas.
Is this ok? The paint is not gonna peel because of water getting under it is it?
I think the touch up paint should be just fine to prevent rain from getting under the paint.


Thanks in advance.

if there is primer under the peeled areas and not old paint then you might want to brush on a bit of catalyzed clear to "seal" the area. Next time slowly pull the tape over its self, so that it is in the shape of a very sharp U. If that makes any sense

Yeah I get what you mean.

I applied some touch up paint from BMW. I think I'm gonna brush some 2K clear over it later.

Thanks for reply!
