Yes, the paint is scratched beyond the edge of the bonded bits.
Galvanised body or not, I'm not happy with them having scraped
the paint. They also scraped the a-pillar trim, I saw this
when I pulled the trim. I think given some time and some sun the
vinyl covering will peel.

Well, I'll be having a word with them about this windshield next
Wednesday. Kind of shocking to thing of this shoddy workmanship
from the leading supplier of auto glass in South Africa.

What I am concerned about (might just be my pickyness) is that
the reason the glass sits low in the centre of the a-pillar than
elsewhere. Is this just a bonding problem?

It is not my week, really.
