BBT News

Spring is in the air, love is everywhere… come on old hippies with all your cool VW buses, get things moving, or how unbelievable it is that after wintertime just a little bit of sun can boost your energy so much. This year that first sun came early. Half of February, hallelujah! Yes the sun is a gift from the Gods, in all religions, even in ours! And do we love it? You bet! Soaking up sunlight boosts your vitamin D and that is directly responsible for your “Feel Good” hormones… To help with this we bring you this week the complete Samba roof, to convert your bus into a driving vitamin D generator, ah!

Finally arrived the first run of the complete Samba roofs, wowh what a hit! If you want one be quick as they’re almost already sold out , and we had many! More will follow soon however, we’ve got them now in continuous production. Bad roof? Why don’t you use one of our roofs? We made these roofs especially to save more buses. And get more fun (and vitamin D) out of existing buses!

We also supply all ragtop parts, separate or in kit, you can find by clicking here

Same time with the roofs we bring you also the inner reinforcements for the skylights as a spare part. Did you know that every bus with double doors or with sliding roof has these reinforcements. Or shall we say, should have? Well now we offer you the solution !

No substitutes but real replacement top quality parts, that’s what your splittie deserves, nothing less!

After too long being out of stock we finally received  the pre oct 52 shock absorbers  for the split window back in stock. These shocks are just a notch shorter as the later models and therefore pretty special on their own. Of course we got you covered and supply these now from stock.
