Making of…. some preps we did before the Open house last june….

It only takes some friends, some steel, some equipment, a lot of measuring and some guts to put cars on poles…

The idea was to get a more full view when you enter our car building, we always thought the dimensions above our cars where not in correct ratio with the entire views… so we decided to put our micro cars on poles to gain more visibility and gave the entire space inside a more cozy look… I think we succeeded…

Not for the faint at hearted, we had some serious grinding, welding and all kind of other construction works… some pictures from down the road we like to share with you!

The result is stunning and all we could ask for… as all visitors to our open house can agree…  special constructions, should be a new job for us….another one…:)

The Heinkel Trojan looks the whole deal on his private pole with behind it the BMW Isetta and the Gogomobil…. high and dry… they remember me of storks sitting on their nests….:)

 

Big thanks for everybody involved and helped, mentally or hands on… this was a cool construction that kept us busy for a couple of days….

We go real deep to test our parts… literally

BBT Pascal exercise his Bugster (European version of a Baja bug) very often and every time he get the change for it. Besides this bug been build with all BBT parts many moons ago, Pascal also test regular BBT parts to extremes… and yes, sometimes he goes very deep to test our parts… as seen here on the last European Bug In off-road track….

Pascal say Hi to all of You!!! 

 

Meet the BBT mobile cleaners!

We’re proud on our warehouse, and we try to do everything to keep it clean.

Clean is important to us, as it saves a lot of breakdowns in our electronics, scanners, VCA’s and such, but also our orderpickers and reach trucks are electronic…

So we had already the small broom machine, but expanded with our own micro scrub, wash and water removal machine, all in one and very compact, perfect for in between shelves! We called our “kilo” and really, don’t ask me where that name comes from!

No dust in our warehouse anymore!
