In Belgium as in most parts of the world the lockdown measures have been released dramatically… seems they got the virus under control in most part of the world, but then there’s a new outbreak in South Korea and a mortality raise in Sweden…. We don’t think the pandemic will be forgotten soon, but as said earlier we will have to learn to live with it.

Well as long as we can wrench on our beloved Volkswagens, we will find a way to live together with the Corona virus and survive.
After all our little passion survived the Hi-Tech crisis in 2001 and bank crisis in 2008-2009, and now the Corona crisis in 2020… So hey we’re here to stay…

To enjoy that stay we, at BBT News, bring you the updates of our products weekly… Every Friday… So let’s see what BBT offers you this week as an extra….

We bring you the reverse light for the late split & early bay window bus.

This reverse light was mainly on your bus under M code M47 or for early bay window also under M524, M601 or M24 and so optional equipment for sure.

If your bus has the cut out you can replace it, but if your bus came from the factory without it wasn’t equipped with this option.
Of course, you can always cut the holes and install yourself. In worst case we can get you the template where to cut the hole.

Many times eaten by rust or just missing this unit is fairly inexpensive and looks just great…
No electric components work as new electrical components on a classic Volkswagen.

We also add this week the missing member to our seat padding family.

BBT is one of the world largest seat padding distributors for classis Volkswagens with huge inventory and very competitive pricing.
We missed this seat padding for walk through buses built between 1963 and 1967 for the right front seat (passenger side for LHD configurations)

It’s always a good moment when you can make a family (or group) of products more complete….

Crazy times, It’s something we hear almost on a daily base..
Times are changing in the way we work, eat, sleep and see our closest friends & family, we look at things perhaps in a different way as how we used to.

But some things remain the same and they give us stability and a much needed routine.
One of these “routine” things is our BBT News we bring  you on a weekly base.

Our news can’t be put on hold, not even by corona…

This week we only have one new product but we have many more to come in upcoming weeks…

This orange bulbs for indicators are a smooth trick to have legal white or clear indicator lenses, what give a very special effect to your car off course.

Or when your lenses are kind a faded it’s a common use to replace your bulbs with orange ones for a brighter orange signal.

Frequently also used to replace the parking lights bulbs on early sealed beam headlights (Like BBT ref 0600 or 0600-010 for Beetle or 0600-050 for left and 0600-060 for right side) for bus and turn them into indicators.

We supply these orange bulbs in 12 Volt for quite a while under BBT ref 0661-25 and now we bring you the same in 6 volts.

What used to be a shop reference only becomes now a full worthy member of the BBT parts family…:)

These 6 volt bulbs been sold by the pair as clearly marked in our catalogs.

Another routine to keep us going should become our bi-weekly “Product in the Picture”.

We focus our attention this week on some of the smaller bits and bobs we need during the restoration or assembly process of your project..

Bolts, nuts, studs, screws, clamps and washers.

At BBT we pride ourselves in sourcing or manufacturing the correct replacement parts, as such we look at the specs of the original part and try and meet this 100% in quality and fit.

Our hardware doesn’t escape this process..

And, although they’re not the most interesting parts, they are ever so important as they keep your beloved car together in 1 piece!

Because of the volume of hardware we have in our assortment it’s hard to list all the product references.

However,If you go to our catalogue via our website .

You can either look in the ‘Fixing material’ category in our menu which will list all our fixings or you can also enter the following codes in our search bar..

8700, – 8705 for bolts
8711 & 8721 for bolts with an hexagonal socket
8722 for studs
8730 – 8739 for nuts
8750 – 8758 for washers
8760 – 8762 for screws
