    Hi everybody,

    I will introduce myself too.
    I'am Michael from The Netherlands and have since 10 years a Trabant 601 from production year 4-1989.
    I was many years before a big fan of this car but a that time I had no driving license and money to afford one.
    2,5 month's ago it passed technical inspection and with out problems.
    I drive it only with good weather conditions so in winter or rainy days he stays into the garage!

    @Wartburg353,thnx for like!

    I was look and read in this forum and I'am surprised how many Trabant's are "moved" to the USA and Australia....great!
    Here some xtra pictures I was forget to place here....
    These are pictures of dash and engine room.
    I have made an extra fusebox under the hood en starter switch.
    I have also original DDR tools for adjust ignition and engine RPM.
    This Autotester divice is multifunctional.

    I was wondering the same thing. Pretty sure one is a clock and another a fuel gauge but wasn't sure about the other two...

    Sure,I will tell you.
    First gauge is RPM meter from a four stroke engine but it is working because I have made small circuitboard. (see wire diagram)
    Second is a voltmeter the AMP meter is not working and last a clock.
    These components get their power from second fusebox I have made under hood.
    It is an original Trabant fusebox what is original mounted from the Sachsenring factory.
    Now I have plans to make a new strip with 3 gauges instead of 4 because AMP gauge will be removed!

    PS:I have also start a topic in "Reatauration"
