Late model bulkhead update….

The tooling is finished, test hit is done, we’re trimming the tooling for the restrike, we’re getting close, real close!

We hope to see the sample end of next week in our hands…

For people crazy about deep draw pressing like us, here’s pictures of our tooling (the female part)

Hauling VW signs around…. in style

Ever wondered why Volkswagen made Pick up trucks and Westfalia made long beam haulers?

To move signs around off course!

See our 1963 Crewcab and our 1961 Westfalia Long Beam hauler in action while we move our 10 meter long “VOLKSWAGEN” letters from one warehouse to the other.

Let’s start the loading!

Ready for the trek?

Start the engine and drive! Click on this picture to see the driving movie!

Some “outside” pictures, we don’t do this every day after all…:)

Arrived at the other warehouse, thanks God just down the street, as the load was long and heavy…:)

Corner was a little too sharp, so we decided to unload still parked partially outside…

The 1963 crewcab with its crazy 1961 long beam Westfalia trailer, they did the job!

My perfect marker for the weekend Nicolas says Hi to all of you, thanks for watching!

We can start now to hang the Volkswagen sign where it belongs above our cars…:)

BBT News

Are you witstanding the Corona measures well? Are You still understand what your goverment wants from you?
Simply to say we don’t know anymore, so we better use our “common senses”.
With these common senses we like to present you this week’s new products for the  BBT product line for your aircooled Volkswagen.

Let’s go, and get that exhaust mounted as it should.

Besides our own BBT exhaust kits and clamps under  BBT #1000 for the kit and BBT #1001 for the tailpipe clamp.

We decided to bring back the German exhaust mounting kits and clamps.
Prooved quality and if we run out of one we still can supply the other one (that’s the idea at least)

Let’s call this a safe haven.

Meanwhile it’s your choice which one to use, to us they’re about the same in look, feel, smell and use…. It’s up to you, really…

1000-005 Exhaust assembly kit Type1 – German

1001-005 Exhaust gasket & bracket – German

BBT has a full range of exhaust mounting kits that you can find clicking HERE and exhaust clamps that can be found by clicking HERE

Let’s go more exotic. We bring you the rear parcel shelf for the Brazilian Kombi. Do You feel the Samba?

If you can not situate the parcel shelf it’s the steel floor on top of your engine, where you load your parcels when you open your tailgate.
Stamped on brand new tooling Made in Brazil.

Always dented, crushed and destroyed from loading things onto it that shouldn’t be loaded there. If not it’s hacked to work easier on engines, or it’s simply rusted out. The fact is we haven’t seen too many Brazlian kombi with good rear parcel shelves…

Can be easily modified to use in German made kombi as well.
A very economic alternative that really fits….

0890-933-1 Cargofloor rear – Bus Brasil -75

We have also the inspection hatch for the cargo floor above.

0890-933-2 Inspection hatch in cargofloor rear – Bus Brasil -75

But we work hard to keep the zero stock to a minimum as absolutely possible. Our purchase team is outdoing themselves to try and get all in what we need, or what you need… that is better said!

We stay your reliable source for Volkswagen parts, also during Corona times, we learn to live with the virus and keep serving you with all measures to keep it as safe as possible.!
