Less than perfect, but if you can't get e fingernail to catch in them, they're probably OK. 

 

Did you have the bore measured for wear after the hone?

Standard bore size is 95.00-95.01 mm.  (3.7402-3.7406")  You say yours is smaller than standard, so I suspect the measurement is off.  One way to approach this is to see what the piston clearance actually is.  To do this, either measure a bore gauge and the piston with the same micrometer, or remove the piston and see how big a feeler gauge who can insert into the bore and still slide the piston in.  Most gauge sets include a .0015" and a .002". 

 

Piston clearance should be .040-.065mm (.0016 - .0026")

 

The hone job wasn't done correctly, either; no cross hatch.  And you should mop out all that extra oil on top before you start it.
