    Razi, any chance of a price for the whole thing? If you could supply a pic I'd be grateful.

    If I was closer I'd be around like a shot! As it is I'd have to arrange transport, and by the time I've couriered up the engine and other bits I'd be after, I might as well pay to get the whole car shipped up. Let me know if he's happy, and a price.

    Cheers for now, Ron.

    I will be able to get you pictures/video of the car on Thursday Ron. He had started taking bits and pieces off the car in preparation last week. I've told him to hold fire until you confirm if you want the whole thing or not. As far as i know, everything listed is still available but will confirm when taking pictures. Price he wants is £500, I've already agreed to pay him £80 for the gearbox, so you would be looking at £400-£420. Feel free to make an offer Ron, i will let him know.

    Ok Razi,

    I'll not say for definite until I've seen some pics then, it's about £300 to get it shipped up, so it does start to run to money! That's not his problem though, and I know it sounds like it's probably worth more in parts. Very interested, I'm drawing a blank on the one local to me, so please do put some pics up when you are able and thank you for asking him.

    Cheers for now, and good luck with yours!

    Hi again Razi,

    Have just seen the latest on Retro Rides, and see how much interest there is in the parts! Your pal's already got enough interest to be approaching what I'd want to pay anyways, so I'll pass on buying the whole car... It's a real shame I'm so far north, Trabi's are very thin on the ground up here. To be honest, what I'm after is a whole car to restore, slow time, and run alongside Rosie. I'm pleased for your pal mind, and at least a few Trabis will benefit.

    Again, many thanks for your consideration, and good luck with it on Thursday.

    Cheers now, Ron.

    No problem Ron, thanks for letting me know. Tbh i would of had this car for myself as also like you, want a second one. But its in a real bad state rust wise, the whole floor/chassis/all the metal around the glass cannot be saved, would need cutting out and new put in if that's possible. I'm going to raid this for parts to get my one on the road by the end of September.

    Not the motor? Just the mechanism?? I might have one of those..
  14. I think it's just the mechanism because one wiper works but the other is kaput

    Check that the arm is secured to the spindle.... it's not the most robust connection ever invented!!
