Fixed, fettled & on the road

“After picking my Trabant up from Project Shop, I’ve really noticed the difference. Since you’ve totally rebuilt the rear suspension the ride is much more compliant, less agricultural and smoother as well as being quieter and rattling less. 

I’m now looking forward to my drives so much more and am looking forward to the IFA club day at Foxfield, not to mention the trip to the former-DDR coming up. Please thank the team who worked on the car, from a very happy Trabant owner!”
