Two weeks without Product update, BBT’s Open House and convoy, Hessisch Oldendorf and European Bug in kept us very, very busy!
But now we’re back, and we have been busy in our product dept for sure, so loads of new parts to present today….
Parts from VW people for VW people… we at BBT use our own parts on our own cars, and do drive our cars, camp in them, live them, breath them….
so what’s new, and what we do exactly did last couple of weeks to help your hobby! let’s move to the parts now….
BBT # 0524-560 Sliding door handle with cap all Bay window bus 08/67-07/79 Silverbeige
Replace that worn out, and cracked or broken handle with this quality product! the best on the market and at an extreme competitive price too! not the flimsy plastic whobbling reproduction, but something really usable here!
BBT #1200-700 Mountingkit mastercylinder, all Beetle with regular front axle (no Super Beetle)
No need to clean those old bushings, or over-thighten old scruffy bolts, we got the perfect kit to assemble that brake master cylinder back to your chassis now….
BBT # 1200-710 Mountingkit mastercylinder for all beetles with Mac Pherson Front suspension.
No need to clean these old bushings, or over-tighten old scruffy bolts, we got the perfect kit to assemble that brake master cylinder back to your chassis now….
BBT # 1208-150 Brake line reservoir to master cylinder 0.5m Bay window bus build between 72-79
very special designed and not replaceable by anything, we thought to come up and make it like original, for all you to have….
BBT # 0257-010 Rubber brake/clutch pedal pad (wedge type)
After VW fined us for selling pedal pads with VW logo seems they can’t supply themselves. We have found the only solution in the 1974 and later pedal pads, they don’t carry a VW logo so that’s no big deal but they fit all models and years… we working on the official distribution of the logo version but not ready yet, at least we have here an alternative for the time being, fits all beetles, and T25/T3 Vanagon buses…
BBT # 1337-150 King pin stop bolt all splitwindow bus -67
Replace both original models, this BBT one fits all! Proud BBT production! Suspension guru’s, this one is especially for You!
BBT # 0704-250 Bushing for shock pad body-frame (2) all beetles 08/71-
Proud BBT production for a part obsolete for a long time now, running out of used parts made us producing it! Helps You to finish the restoration of your baby like it should…

Alain was working with us all weekend
Old Blue, a former US race car was flip crashed, flipped over and was all into pieces, they let crush into a cube, and kept it behind the shop, until we found it… the smallest VW race car in the world? the most compact for sure… BBT had it on display.

One of the latest arrivals didn’t had much luck and has got a little engine compartment burnout in his previous life.
