  1. I’m sorry y’all for getting so loud at the Hard Rock! It is a honor for me 2 be on this list for 2018-2019! I didn’t win it, but I don’t care about winning! The fact that I met so many good people, and had the time of my life, was my reward! I can’t thank window film magazine, and the WFCT crew enough for doing such a great show every year! This show makes me proud 2 be a window tinter! Why go to Sema, when I got the WFCT! Much Love, and Respect 2 Trish Lopez, and the whole WFCT crew! Your show, and magazine gets me through the hard times as well. Y’all put meaning into what we do! I can’t thank y’all enough for that!
