Fall has come, bye bye summer, we’re leaving the most favorite season for many and come into a transition season where you only can like the colors of the leaves of the trees in a couple of weeks…:)
In Belgium they still try to “create” a government, roughly 460 days after elections they didn’t got real time for that yet, uh. It’s unbelievable how Belgian politicians are creative as we’re going through Covid times with pretty reasonable numbers and a lot of necessary measurements, but without a full government. New elections? Most people here hope so!
Globally there is a lot of uncertainty about world economy. One week they think recovery comes fast, to haul that tower down, the week after one is super negative. What that will do on the stock and equity markets is a big question.
What isn’t a big question is our BBT News, served you on a weekly base and every week we like to present you the latest additions to our ever growing program to restore and maintain your aircooled Volkswagen like it should, with quality parts we only would use on our own cars.
Metal parts and wipers this week, wipers, for that grey rainy fall weather….
But let’s first start with the headlight bowls for split window beetle.
Very specific these headlight bowls up to 1953 don’t have the pressings in the back neither flat spots. We could call them a basic headlight bowl without any special form or lay out.
These are the headlight bowls used in our BBT split window bug fenders you can find HERE
Of course we have a full family of headlight bowls which you can find HERE

The D-post is the post next to your tailgate and engine lid on a VW bus.
This new D-post is engineered with reverse engineering like all of our Silver Weld Through metal and made for your buses built from 1963 up to 1967, the ones with the wide tailgates.
We supply left and right separately for your convenience
0890-928 D-post Complete Left – Bus 08/63-07/67
0890-929 D-post Complete Right – Bus 08/63-07/67
We enlarged our wiper program with good quality wiper blades for 181, Trekker or Thing, whatever you like to call the post war Kubelwagens…
A 181 must be the perfect partner on a hunting trip and as fall has started you might need those.
Three colors to choose from and we sell them by the pair.
Of course we stock a full range of wipers and wiper blades
2405-000 Wiper blades black 300mm (pair) – Type181
2405-005 Wiper blades silver 300mm (pair) – Type181
2405-010 Wiper blades khaki 300mm (pair) – Type181
This electronic 6 volt turn signal relay is really more like “just” a 6 volt blinker relay.
Because they are electronically driven this flasher unit gives a continuous output either in voltage as in frequency and this makes a big difference for your indicators on 6 Volt especially stationary before traffic lights or at corners. Also on low RPM.
A realistic difference definitely worth the investment to raise your safety tremendously.
Very important is that you give the extra ground wire good connection to the body.
This is the relay we use on all of our 6 volt BBT cars.

Enjoy first fall weather, first fall storm and first fall hiking. Or just stay home and work that VW… your choice that is, whatever you decide to do, enjoy, always.
We wish you a relaxed weekend.
