Default Lots of different work exp but no relavent quals

Hi everybody this is my first post so be gentle with me.
I'm desperate to emigrate to NZ with my family as we already spent a year there on a working holiday and loved it. My problem is that as the main applicant I'm short of points without a job offer.
I've a degree in Chemistry but i've never done any work related to it. I've been mechanicing (spelling??) on cars and motorbikes (no qualifications in either) since I was 12 but other than a 2 year stint in a bike dealership its all been either for family business's or myself.
I've been doing sign making for about 4 years now including about 2 years on the job training with a company that has now closed down, no formal qualifications in it other than an ABC certicate in screen printing but I don't think its worth any points.
Currently seem to have 100 points for EOI if I can use the 50 for my degree and then 15 points from 4 years exp signmaking (don't know quite how i would prove this though)

Am looking long term so I was thinking about getting either a qualification in motor vehicle mechanics so I can claim for that work exp and hopefully get a job doing it in NZ or one in the construction trades (preferably joiner) on the long term list then work here in the UK to get experiance as I can turn my hand to most other things. But does anybody know what current city and guilds are equivalent to the NZ level 4 qualifications everything seems to need.

Alternatively does anybody reading this need a sign maker in NZ???
Cheers
Giles
