In the glassBYTEs item on timekeeping at the recent Auto Glass Technicians Olympics on October 21, one paragraph concerned a contestant named Ron who had worked on a car with a scratch on a pinchweld.
The item was meant as a whimsical, tongue-in-cheek account of the event. It was not meant to reflect on any contestant's abilities, as the scratch was already on the car.
Because only one contestant in the Technician Olympics was named Ron, glassBYTEs wants to point out that the item in no way should reflect the skills of Ron Mulvey. In the competition, Ron did have an instance in which the pinchweld had already been primed and the adhesive applied, when he started priming the windshield a judge approached the vehicle and asked, "What is that?" pointing to something in the area of the pinchweld. Ron backed away from the windshield he was priming and walked over to where the judge was pointing and saw a piece of lint on the urethane.
glassBYTEs regrets any misunderstanding this may have caused.
