Why an old Volkswagen, you ask?
Well, they may not have high-tech bells and whistles.

But they have character.
Something we all crave.

Even more than an air conditioner on a bloody hot day.
So, get in that rusty beetle or hippie bus and drive it around happily.

Turn a smile on people’s faces wherever you go.
Something we can use more than ever in these weird times.

To keep your icon on the road BBT brings you more and better parts.
Every week, over and over again.

Welcome to BBT News.

We decided it was time for more accurate splash pans for that splittie bus.
We bring you splash pans that do fit better for the different model years.

There was a ton minor differences over the years.
But most we could streamline into two models.

We have the 55-89 model to cover the early buses.
Most work we put in to the 60-66 model.

For the one year only 1967 model or with a dual circuit brake master cylinder you need a sleeve where the brake light switch peaks out.

The sleeve is quite easy to make.
There for we do not grave an extra part nr for it for now.

This is a proud addition to our Silver Weld Through program.

Out of deep in the world of VW engine builders we a had the request to add the Maxi 26 Full Flow Oil Pumps.
Maxi 26 In & Out Full Flow Oil Pumps provide a way to operate your engine “Full Flow” without the inconvenience and cost of drilling and tapping your engine case.

Maxi 26 In & Out Full Flow Oil Pumps are manufactured with large 3/8″ inlet and outlets for unrestricted, high volume oil flow.
The aluminum alloy used in manufacturing the housing matches the temperature characteristics of the engine case to help reduce leaks and oil loss.

Keyed 9 tooth 26mm drive gear and blueprinted specs help provide an oil system that will greatly reduce oil temperature and increase engine life.

The Maxi 26 In & Out 6061 T-6 billet cover is anodized in black, CNC engraved, and will accept 3/8″ NPT fittings HERE

Our other Maxi Flow oilpumps you find found HERE

We advise to grease the lock before use for trouble free and long-term operation.

Seems fall is over in Western Europe.
First freezing cold is a fact.

Hopefully, the freezing takes the rain away for a while.
We, at BBT, do not take anything away…..

….we bring you our product updates and new arrivals.
Just like any other week.

Welcome to the BBT News


Split window beetles have a different type of molding, dull nerved aluminum that is only polished, not anodized as later models.

The profile of these moldings requires a specific clip.
Not available anymore since decades we bring them back.

The clip is close to the later model but has flat foots where sliding into the molding.
Made from a special spring steel it holds the molding by tension.

After rejection of the first production, we are proud to say these are now exactly as we wanted them and exactly as they should be.

Reversed engineered from a handful NOS ones that BBT Bob found on one of his trips.

Clips for later model wide molding you find HERE

We decided to put some more cool parts from our NOS warehouse online.
We start today with these absolute NOS cylinder heads for 1200cc engines.

Only one limited lot.
First come, first served.

Once they are gone, they do not come back.

How many Ghia’s did we dismantle last couple of years?
None, these days are over.

So, more Ghia parts get rare and hard to find, because good used supply is drying out.
We decided to help you out with brand new parts.

This pair of door handles for the 64 – 67 Ghia Type 14 to start with.
High quality, with three matching keys in correct SC profile per pair.

Ghia’s after 1967 use the same door handles as a Beetle HERE

Type 3 lovers beware!
BBT does NOT forget  you!

We bring you a brand-new and specific distributor clamp.
Remarkably close to Type 1 distributor clamps HERE but it is different.

Because of the lay out of the Type 3 engine it is hard to set your timing with a clamp for a Beetle distributor.

Type 3 has a longer bolt that is fixed on one side.
Get that timing right, hold that timing right.

Western Europe experiences the wettest fall that most people can remember.
Rain, humidity, wet, grey, overcast and sometimes wind too.

To see the sun, we must go to our Volkswagen storages or workshops.
Classic Volkswagens always give sunshine…. in our hearts.

It is amazing so many people started up their winter projects.
We see clearly on the kind of parts we sell.
Did you start up yours?

Let the sun shine in our hearts, using BBT parts.
Keep it dry, do not cry… about inferior parts.

You have a choice.
Welcome to the BBT News.

SWT continues with double cab panels!
We made all panels for left or right-side loading doors.

Theoretically you can build also a 4-door double cab.
Four door was never original but how cool is that?

Loading doors are equal as normal T1 cargo doors.
