So, if the paint shop had followed your instructions, the front windshield would have had a "black ring" around it too, except for the bottom edge, which is covered with the large fiberglass structural fairing. Correct?
So....since those pics were from 2014, have there been any cracks (hairline or otherwise) that developed around the windshield, where the painter crossed the demarcation line between fiberglass and sika?
