Pickapart

Hutt Valley, Wellington, yesterday: I had a broken windscreen wiper that I’ve been meaning to replace. A new part would cost alot- assuming I could get one…

So today I finally got around to going to Pick-A-Part, half way up the Hutt valley at Wingate.

$2 gains you access- your provided with a high-viz jacket, you bring the tools.

The place is way larger than I imagined. Hundreds upon hundreds of wrecked vehicles lined up in rows.

There were a surprising amount of other people there hacking away at the wrecks.

It took me quite a while to find what I was looking for, but only a few minutes to dismantle. $7 for a windscreen wiper arm-  not bad…
