    Hey guys! Sorry it's been so long since I've been on here/updated you all on the Trabant art car. The build is going extremely slow due to most of my time going towards my engineering degree or other projects.
    However I am in need of some parts:
    -Clutch (or at least friction pads and rivets)
    -wheel bearings
    -brake slave cylinders
    -honestly any suspension or driveline components you have I might need, so let me know what you have!

    If you want to email me directly, you can reach me at Logan.palmer28@gmail.com

    Cheers!

    The wheel bearings are just standard metric bearings also you should be able to get the clutch relined locally my local brake guy was able to do mine a few years ago no problem

    Just write down what you need, and order a lot from Germany at once. The freight will be correspondingly cheaper. Ditto on the clutch and brake linings as mbeamish said. I'd get proper brake cylinders, though, and you might want to replace all the lines, since this car has sat for many years. Trabants are very simple cars, but you don't want to take chances on brakes and suspension/steering. Check the fuel tank for rust- take it out of the car, and look it over top to bottom, inside and out. Otherwise, if the car is solid bodywise and electrically, it should run, no problem. Have you started it yet?
