Supercheap Auto — Lyndar Paint System
n typical Kiwi fashion, the DIY industry in New Zealand has grown into a multinational, mega-dollar business. History suggests that our No. 8 fencing wire mentality is, indeed, a symbol for our innovativeness and make-do resourcefulness. Put simply, it’s in our character to ‘have a go.’
You’ve only got to look at the success of what was once the humble hardware store, now transformed into massive emporiums that draw us in like bees to a honey-pot every Saturday morning.
The auto parts and accessories business has also taken huge leaps and bounds over the past decade or so. Virtually every conceivable part, accessory and car-care product can now be purchased easily at reasonable prices — only 10 years ago that would have been unconceivable. Good news for modern car owners and classic car owners alike.
With over 300 stores in Australia and New Zealand, Supercheap Auto has become firmly embedded into our car DIY culture. As Kiwis, we pride ourselves on our ability to get stuck in ourselves and, combined with the extensive range of automotive-related products on offer from Supercheap Auto, many of us have gained the confidence to tackle everything from a basic cut and polish to more complex mechanical tasks.
