Where it all Started


Our store has been “Bringing The Cool” since 1972.

The Tint a Car brand has grown from one store to now over 100 stores across Australia and New Zealand. All this is a result of the foresight of Jim Kennedy the original owner and since then, a mutually compatible combination of dedicated franchises and representatives from the franchisor.

We invite you on this 50-year journey with us and help Bring the Cool back to today.
