And last but not least this week…

Bay window bus vent wings

The market was screaming for years for good vent wings, used items in good condition been raised to stratospheric levels and been paid for lately what an entire bus costed a mere 15 years ago. Vent wings are victim of the rust devil and we’re aware many years the market was ready for a serious replacement part.

Therefor BBT stepped up and start producing a complete new assembly and a perfect replacement part, no substitutes with aluminum and such, but the real deal, a vent wing exactly like original, but new…. Brand new and exactly like original, the real deal.

Did we know how many separate parts been involved to produce this vents wings… its almost incredible for a part that looks so easy…. But actually is a very complicated part to make and assemble. Besides all different components to produce it needs 24! riveting jobs (exactly like original) it needs 110 minutes assembly time in total for each frame, and the outer frame needs no less than 2 different laser operations. All in all very complicated and very intensive to produce. Our manufacturer did a great job and we’re very proud to the results!

Over four years in development, the final product is awesome! A perfect vent wing as was meant to be, and 100% like original! Our idea’s gives new dimensions to our humble VW bus world!

Let the air flow, let the wind blow, open these new vent wings and enjoy the fresh air in your bus!
