    I need to get my Trabi repainted. Is there anything special I need to know before taking it in to an auto body shop? Particular type of paint required, etc?

    Tom,
    Not sure there is anything special about the paint, only the specific color if you're trying to perfect match to an original color.
    There is a great thread (Thanks Justin) which gives info on general originality on a number of levels.

    On a side note, did you have your car at Mid-Ohio in July of this year?
    A good friend sent me this photo, knowing I was a Trabi freak and that their ain't too many around these parts.
    It has Tennessee plates, but you never know......

    Thanks for the info on the paint.

    Yes, we had our Trabi in central Ohio, since we live in Columbus. He have Ohio plates that say "MYTRABI" :)

    A little late to the party, but, there's something about that color. It's vaguely art deco, vaguely space age. Shades of Fallout. I really have been digging the color, and others like it, on various cars I see on the road.
