It’s winter in Western Europe.
Snow, ice, and freezing temperatures.

It’s an extreme winter in Scandinavia.
Loads of snow, extremely freezing and too much ice.

It is almost spring weather in south of Spain.
BBT customers send us pictures from their lunch on their patio…

Nothing we can do about the weather.
But we can help with parts for your Classic Volkswagen.

This week again we have a couple of real cool releases for you lined up.
Welcome to the BBT News.


Most Bay Window Westfalia campers had always an unbelievable beautiful upholstery.
Beautiful, checkered colors, to match the woodgrain interiors.

As nothing last forever,  we now offer our brand new (re)production as a perfect replacement.
Several reproductions were already on the market, but nothing that could carry our interest.

We bring you bright colors, wear-resistant, economically priced and fire retardant.
That last one is especially important and even mandatory in camper vans.

This upholstery is specially woven for us and meets all our requirements.
We have a cool quantity breakdown on rolls of 50 meters.

But we sell also per running meter on a width of 150cm in all five original colors.
Logically, we will not accept returns for custom-delivered lengths.

Perfect to bring that scruffy interior back to factory standards.
Or are you creative enough to make accessories, cushions, purses or?

Making tooling can be tricky…

This tooling was ordered over 10 years ago.
Major surprise when we got the phone call three months ago it was finally ready!

This plug sits in the lower part of the B pillar on all bay window buses and T25/T3/Vanagon.
It is meant to seal the holes after treating the cavities for corrosion prevention.

Easy installation. Four needed per car.
Insert the plug and tap the top in with a hammer.

Totally unhappy with what was available we made our own valve cover gaskets.
Quality is a main issue, we teamed up with a very experienced cork gasket maker.

Testing being more important than producing we evaluated multiple samples on different test cars and engines over the last couple of years.
Perfect fit, to stay in place and no leaks that were our targets.

Several combinations later, changing the mixture of rubber, cork, density, and pressure temperatures we got the positive results we had been looking for.
Even without any sealer if  used in combination with BBT valve cover HERE and BBT valve cover clip HERE

Finally, a valve cover gasket our beloved Volkswagens deserved.
And because of the quantity produced we can offer at competitive prices with very cool quantity breakdowns, order yours now!
