Does this windshield fix by dealer look acceptable?

Almost as bad as my brother's car back in the early 80's. He was working 7 12s and I had to pick up his car from the body shop. The guy came out to glare over the work - they replaced a fender but poorly painted the stripes on the fender versus using the OEM pinstripe tape. They repaired the back fender but put Bondo over the emblem hole so now only one side had the emblem. The guy's face drooped when I told him I wouldn't sign for it since my big brother would beat the crap out of me for accepting such poor work.

Dealership replaced windshield to fix a whistling problem. Noise is gone so that’s cool. However, this is what they gave back to me. To me this is BS. Am I over reacting?

That's the ugliest shit i've ever seen. How do you get rid of that black residue
Still there. They are sending someone to me next week to replace the windshield for the 4th time.

i'd keep a good eye on the tech and express your concern. But dont stress out over it. I would say it was the last window of the day and someone was in a hurry to be done. It sucks cause it is your jeep that got the crap end of the stick.. I would be as long as its another tech putting in the glass hes going to do a good job and rub it into the other techs face how terrible of a job he did.

Like a previous poster mentioned, hopefully that excess sealant isn't covering up nicks to the paint as well, I'm crossing my fingers for you too!

looks like someone let little Johnny get that RTV tube and go to town on it ….
I would definitely not accept that that workmanship if you want to call it that
wow obviously your dealer has hired someone that just doesn't care about the type of work that squeaks by the "quality" control of that shop
