Is Clear Bra supposed to look this bad?

Ok guys, so I picked up my white ST3 about 2 weeks ago. I've never had a car that looks good enough to warrant a clear bra installation until I got this one. As I've had bad experiences with tint and what not in the past, I made sure to go to a 3M Certified installer. The tint came out perfect. The clear bra installation, is leaving much to be desired. I am really unsure if I am just being picky, or if anyone else agrees that the way this stuff was cut looks like complete crap. It seems that they just straight up skipped problem areas by simply not covering them. The lines are jagged and do not match up with the lines of the body work at all. There are bubbles under the part where it should be sealed on the bottom. I took it back to them yesterday to have them get out some of the big bubbles, but it seems that they just rushed it super fast and mangled the car. There are numerous spots that also have razor blade marks into my paint. I know this stuff isn't supposed to be "completely invisible", but this just seems unacceptable.

So much for me having paint worth protecting :rant:

I'm really at a loss of what to do. What do you guys think?
