Meet the Team
Bringing Together Perths Best Tinting Team
Back in the day, in 2014, Kylie Dillon and Brett Thompson came together and formed Total Tint Solutions. In 2018 more businesses joined the team forming the T Team, professionally known as the Total Tint Solutions Group.
Together this team of tinting vigilante’s has over 100 years of experience.
This means you can be sure these guys know what they are doing.
Don’t take our word for it though.
We are a 3M selected licensed dealer, (We’ve got badges to prove it) and only the best tinters get that.
We are trusted by car owners and dealers alike with premium luxury car tinting. If Batman moved to Perth, we’d be the guys tinting the Batmobile.
With all this expertise and knowledge our guys will take you through the end to end process. Tinting is not ‘one size fits all’ process so they use their experience and skills to make sure you get the right product to suit your needs and budget.
And we don’t just do cars. Residential and commercial buildings need tinting too. Keeping the sun out of homes and offices keeps you cool and collected.
Our focus is on you and getting you the best results, and as we have businesses across WA, there’s always a store close to you.
If the sun’s poking in where it’s not wanted, give us a call.
Colin “Nano-Man” Gibbs
Colin has been tinting cars since 1985, longer than Kylie’s singing career, and before Crocodile Dundee hit the screens. He’s a true tinting veteran with in-the-trenches practical knowledge.
After 33 years he still likes to pick up the tools and get his hands dirty with the rest of the boys.
He joined the T-Team, because he recognised their strong ethics and high standards..
He likes spending time on the water and watching the Eagles win. He watches them lose too although doesn’t enjoy it as much. True fan.

Brett “T-Man” Thompson
Brett started tinting in 1988 and still loves what he does. (So do we Brett!) He finds it incredibly rewarding applying his hard-earned skills on cars, boats, and people’s home.
With Kylie Dillon, he founded the Total Tint Solutions in 2014. Then in 2018 they brought together a great team of experienced tinters (aka T Team) who knew how to run a business right and picked the right brands and products for the best quality and price.
He strives for his best and that’s driven the business forward to where it is now.
Outside work hours he loves his footy, watching his kids play sports, and responsibly sticking to the speed limit on his CBR1000R road bike.
He still dreams of the time he tinted a Maybach so if you ever see his eyes glaze over just snap him out of it.
Favourite Weapon: His trusty heat gun, always at his side. He doesn’t go looking for trouble, but he’s always ready.
Specialist Skills: “Wax On, Wax Off” vehicle paint protection. This is real Mr. Miyagi stuff and Brett is the master.
Dream Car: Lamborghini Aventador, though that Maybach…
Store: Osborne Park and Midland.
Dave ‘Speedy Spud’ Birtwistle
Our newest ‘grease monkey’ Dave Birtwistle has had a passion for cars and racing since he was in the womb.
Don’t be fooled by his mullet, he is a real gun in business and likes to stay ahead of the game, because ‘If you ain’t first, you’re last’.
Known as ’spud’ due to his love of chips, he will win you over with this great customer skills, refreshingly straight forward and honest approach.
He lives and breathes cars, boats and motorbikes and has been running his own show for many years. He goes beyond to help out his customers and is a genuine chatter box.
If he’s not taking his son to race motorbikes, then he’s spending quality time with his family.
Not afraid of being in the fast lane, he will master a quote, tint, wrap, and smile all the way to the finish line.
Specialist skills: The gift of the gab.
Favourite weapon: The phone, cause he loves to chat.
Dream car: Dodge Ram
Leith ‘Bandit’ Bell
Leith is wise to the ways in the game of tinting and has joined the Total Tint group as of early 2020. Yeah perfect timing, during the Covid pandemic.
He can handle the heat with his specialist vinyl wrap shrinking skills. By day he uses his corner card to smooth life’s bubbles… while by night he dreams of racing his dream Lamborghini.
Enjoying a bit of fishing and the love of the outdoors, it is no wonder that he calls Albany home. An established business owner of 20 years, trading as Albany Window Tinting, the boys are delighted to welcome him to the Total Tint Solutions team as one of their own.
Well experienced and equip for the job, you are in good hands with our newest bandit, who doesn’t miss a beat.

Favourite weapon: Kick arse Corner Card and Casting Rod
Dream car: Lamborghini
Store: Albany WA
Craig Castle Edwards (The Alchemist)
An avid Holden lover our sunny boy Craig has been in the business for almost 7 years tinting almost everything. Although excavators and backhoes are less preferred lol.
A family man who loves to throw a few on the BBQ while sinking a few cold ones. (He’s from QLD guys, it’s hot there)
A Jack of all trades this handyman knows how to work a squeegee. His big passion for cars has led him to help out a mate or two and that’s where his forte for tinting began. He finds tinting cars “therapeutic” to feel the serenity. (from the Castle hehe)
Specialist skills: Fusion Hard press squeegee to help push out all those bubbles.
Favourite weapon: Transforming dirty cars to look unreal, especially 4×4’s. They are time-consuming but look great after.
