    I found this motor bay light in a Hungarian webshop, mode for early Wartburgs and Trabants.

    I actually ordered one for fun but have no idea on which models they were found on and where. I have looked at dussins of motor bay pictures but never managed to spot the light itself. It would definitely be handy when refueling in the dark.

    Would anyone like to "shed some light" on this issue?

    I have one in mine, installed in the factory. It is connected to the interior light. Switch on the interior light, and the under-the-hood light comes on.

    Put an LED soffit bulb in it, and it will be much brighter under the hood (and in the car's interior).

    Thanks for the info. Where is it mounted? Do you have a picture you could share with us?

    Those were a standard feature installed on the "Deluxe" models. I don't know if they were an option on others or not.

    I seen a photo and from my recollection, they are mounted near the hood catch (under the hood itself). Like they overlap the hood catch bracket. Does that make any sense?

    This is a real motor light for Trabant! Pay attention to the mount.

    Great photos. I was also looking to see where they fitted.

    That's a nice new hood blanket for your Trabant. Where can you get them?

    Good afternoon!
    Really a blanket from this car. One moment: I took off the blanket, washed it in a washing machine, received a severe reprimand from my wife, and then re-executed the edges of the blanket with a needle and a nylon cord (an overlock type). Kind of very good.

    I apologize for my English, I use Google translator.

    The blanket in my Trabant is a bit grubby too, giving it a wash sounds like a grand idea.

    Let the reprimands commence!
