Still loving the Yugo.  Can't remember if I asked before but what's the story with those graphics? They look too wacky even for 90s dealer fit

They were fitted by the original owner’s husband. She said she kept losing the small white hatchback in car parks so they put stickers up the side to help it stand out.

If and when I get it back on the road the stickers will stay, and any which are compromised by the rusty panels will be replaced as my brother does vinyl graphics as a part of his business.

Nice story. Normally if I bought a car stuff like that would be the first thing in the bin but on this I'd definitely keep them 

You may have already seen on his own posts but we now have a Yugo botherer over in Serbia, @IronStar who maybe able to help with any hard to get parts once it comes to that point

I’m happy to source any bits you may need and send them over to you.  Mostly everything is still available to buy in a shop or in classifieds for not much money. As part of my Yugo bothering, I bought a parts store that was closing with tons of random bits (I have something like 300 exhaust hangers 🤦‍♂️), and have disassembled an entire car with its bits sitting around my garage now.
Plenty of NOS panels available for sale in Serbia as well.

This is really good news!!! I definitely have some parts I’ll need, and some bits I know I’ll find hard to get here. Not sure how I hadn’t pegged a Yugo fan on here!

Anything you need!

Only bits I probably can’t get are RHD specific ones such as dash. All other bits are fair game. Anything I have in the garage as an extra you can have under the going rate 😄

I’ll start making a list! Brake calipers and the panel underneath the windscreen are key bits for sure. 
 

I’ll have a look and draw up a list!

Not sure of that panel is inverse for RHD wipers?  Can you do some measurements so I compare it to mine?

I have an extra set of brake calipers you can have for the postage. Original type, same as yours. However I’d recommend you to go for a newer type, that’s shared with Florida (or Sana as you know it in the UK). They should bolt right up to your carriers, they clear the 13inch wheels , and are peanuts to buy as well. 
I upgraded mine to 257 discs off a Bravo I think, but you need 14inch wheels for this.

I’ll have a look… no idea.

Ok, I’d have to look at where I could get those from. Thank you for the tip!

You probably never got the newer type in the UK. They are plentiful here, and I’m happy to get them from the breakers and send it to you along with the rest of the stuff. 
 

I see it’s missing the rear wiper arm, I should have that spare as well I think. Common “mod” is Punto rear wiper arm as that fits the spline of the wiper.
