Also in 2018 we will try to bring you every Friday news updates and product information for the ever-growing BBT product range…today we introduce two brand new and very interesting products, one for bus, and one for our beloved Karmann Ghia’s.

This needle bearing sits in your front axle housing and let turn your trailing arm smoothly and freely in your front axle housing… these are the outer needle bearings that will fit the front axles of your split window bus with the “big” trailing arms build from the 1964 model year (starting at the 1st of August from the 1963 year of production) all the way up till the end of the split window bus production. Sold each.

Last year we had a lot of problems with the door lock catch for the Karmann Ghia build before end of July 1963. Originally they came in plastic and they had the intention to break real fast, especially as so many door hinges on Ghia’s have little play and don’t align very well with locking mechanism. We decided to team up with a German CNC manufacturer and designed this door lock catch in aluminum to the highest tolerances. Aluminum has the characteristic it will not break off course. Same time we redesigned we could easily make one piece fitting for left as well right side, what made us to rename all under the BBT part 0438-750 and we could  de lete BBT ref 0438-751. BBT ref 0438-750 will fit left as right as one unique part. We finished the part in anodised black for proper looking to match originals. Sold each.
