Su­percheap Auto — Lyn­dar Paint Sys­tem

New Zealand Classic Car - - Trade Professionals -

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.
