Covid is back from never away…. the 4th wave is Europe hitting bad!
Last Tuesday Germany counted most daily infections since the start of this pandemic….

Also in Belgium there’s more people in hospitals, intensive care and dying since a couple of days.
Restaurants get tons of booking annulations, Catering services been called with cancelations all the time.

Hospitals have enough capacity but too much staff infected at home….
Holland start talking about new lock down measures…

BBT stays open, as long as we can, and serve the Volkswagen community with pride!
Welcome at our Weekly News.

We start with the metal U guides in your doors.
These guides hold U channel BBT # 0351 to ensure your window rolls down smoothly.

We started from really nice used ones from the very dry “high desert” in California.
After chemical cleaning and cataphoresis painting (KTL) they just look as  new.

This model is the only correct model for 68-72 model years beetles.

Standard split window kombis and utilities used to have grey panels inside.
We serve most of the cab doors, headliner, kick and tailgate panels already for a longer time.

Today we enlarge that line with the inner panels for the rear cargo/passenger area for kombi and/or double cab.
All  our panels are  made in high grade ABS with the original grain and  can be found HERE

As a final new item this week we add the super long armrest/air duct on the inside of your Deluxe Bay window doors.
Originally made from plastic in the seventies, material hardly holds up 50 years or more.

Many times they brake a tab or have been half way gone from age.
We now offer  the trouble free perfect Wolfsburg West replacement part to assemble your door panels exactly like it should.
