BBT News

Exactly one year ago Russia started the war with Ukraine.
What the Russian President Putin and many thought that the Western world was totally spoiled and at the end of its raison d’etre proved completely wrong.

The Western world showed a lot of unity and act together like one big block.
Our Western aim and force are still to defend our system of democracy and culture of freedom, rightly so.

Or as a friend of Da Houze stated yesterday, we can see the speech of President Putin, but Russians can’t see the speech of President Biden or NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg.
Our freedom gives us power for doing nice things, like collecting classic cars and so much more.

To help and support that hobby we, @ BBT, try to help with good and usable parts to keep your classic Volkswagen on the road or make your restoration a more easy one.
Every week we present what’s new and updated, welcome to our BBT News.


We start with simple necessary things that the brake system of your split window bus really needs.
These brand new clamp brackets  support your brake hose on your front spindles.

It prevents your brake hose from rubbing during steering in order not to damage and keep your brake system safe.
Many times missing, bend, damaged, or rusted, we now offer  the perfect brand new replacement.

Originally mounted behind your grease nipples.
Proudly produced by BBT after absolute NOS samples.

We also finished our fuel line bracket.
This little bracket holds and guides your fuel line on the left side of your fan shroud in your engine compartment.

Originally you cut open a short length of fuel line, ply over your steel fuel line and push in this bracket holder.
The little piece of rubber fuel line will protect the steel fuel line from rubbing and damage.

For first generation 34 DIN HP engines (40HP SAE for our American friends) we have the steel fuel line from fuel pump to chassis HERE
For later engines the fuel line is in development and we hope to release soon.
