  1. I was told in 1988 by LLUMAR that they had never seen heat shrinking before. This tells me that inwas thenforst official windowtinter to once piece window film with heat shrinking. Jack Sagar Craig Pualson was with Martin/Courtald can confirm this. This was at Quality Bumper in Phoenix Az. I’m not sure if the owner has his facilities anymore hes almost 100 and in a nursing home. My point is should the person who changed the entire industry be recognized? I have several tinters that can verify my claims.

  2. Should have spell checked
