BBT News, special pick up edition.

What we didn’t understand this week in the news was why Trump tried to buy Greenland, he’s not a green boy at all, maybe he wanted to buy his soul into heaven? Thanks God he failed, imagin we could start buying and selling countries, what speculation would that start to exist! Meanwhile we prepared for you a special pick up edition from our Newspost on Friday, Single and double cabs are cool, aren’t they?

Let’s continue the trip with the parts behind the treasure chest, and there we find the pick up specific floor plates, the floor plate near to the treasure chest has a specific stamping where the lock comes  because the lock of a treasure chest is just different as the lower closing of a Kombi cargo door. The floor plate on the opposite side of the treasure chest is a regular Kombi  floor plate, depending what side treasure chest you have the opposite side is either BBT 0890-74 or 0890-75.

As for all of our Silver Weld through panels  we  guarantee a perfect fit on our floor plates . All of our panels are made from original Volkswagen models for original Volkswagen models.

Not only the floor plate on the treasure chest side is different from a Kombi also the rocker under the treasure chest is different from a Kombi one. This rocker panel is very specific and runs the entire pick up production from start of production all the way up to the end of the model year 1971.

Also this rocker is part of BBT’s silver weld through program and a perfect fit is guaranteed with that!

BBT still has the intention to deliver every single body part for your bus,and also for your pick up truck. After our roofs we got a lot of request for the rain gutters too. Knowing that a Single Cab pick up rain gutter is different from a Kombi, believe us or not. No mountain to high, no ocean to deep, we dragged down a set of original Single cab pick up rain gutters, that were NOT for the faint at hearted! But we succeeded and hereby we’re proud to present our pick up truck rain gutters.

Our rain gutters are gauranteed 100% perfect fit and many times an essential part when you change the roof of your beloved pick up truck. The roofs for single cab pick up BBT stock under BBT # 0890-840

Last but not least today we want to present you the rear drop gate to your pick up truck, fits single AND double cabs, and actually fits all pick up from the beginning of production all the way up to end of bay window production in July 1979. The pressing might be slightly different, as for splittie there’s not an oval pressing above the hinges, but that’s really it ..The smell, taste, looks and fit are 100% the same.

How many Volkswagen pick up trucks do you know that DON’T need a rear drop gate? For sure you know more DO need a rear drop gate, now you can spread the word, BBT has the rear drop gates for all years split and bay window pick up!

Of course your logical next question is when the side gates will be ready and that answer is simple, they’re nearly ready. But to start with we will have only the single cab up to 1967. The 68-79 are slightly longer and will follow on a later date.
