JOHANNESBURG, 11 FEBRUARY 2023 – The bi-annual LLumar® Tint-Off competition brought together ten of South Africa’s most skilled automotive film fitters. The competition involved the application of LLumar® Safety Window Film to both the back and side window of a vehicle. Overall, the event was a success and demonstrated the contestants’ impressive skills and expertise.
William Setloma, from Rondebult in Gauteng, was crowned champion of the 2023 LLumar® Tint-Off, thanks to his exceptional precision and attention to detail. Setloma, a 13-year veteran of the film fitment industry, will now represent South Africa at the International Tint-Off in the USA in September and took home the grand prize of R7 500. Setloma expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to showcase his skills and represent his country on an international stage.
Emile Young and Anton Subhani were awarded second and third place respectively, demonstrating remarkable skills that impressed the judges. The competition was evaluated based on several criteria, including the quality of installation, completion time, and overall neatness.
