Update on our Beetle front Fenders up to 1959!

Since two years we do work on our tooling for the Beetle front fenders up to 1959, with the correct metal thickness the right radius, correct hump next to the headlight bowl, the perfect “bump” for the running board, the “flat’ on the returning edge etc etc, all in short a perfect reproduction fender for your Pre 1959 VW beetle,

Yes, we will carry the different horn grills….

We’re happy we can announce now the third step tooling is finished and prototypes are rolling of the presses as we speak!

As always said, this fender is made in cast tooling in a three main step way, with some smaller “steps” down the road… it is exactly how Volkswagen made these back in the day, and they’re pressed upright, as that’s the only way we will get the correct hump next to the headlight bowl!

For You some pictures of the evolving prototype “1” what’s almost ready to send to BBT HQ for test fitting later this week….

Stay tuned on our Blog to follow this BBT adventure and learn when things will become available worldwide!

BBT News

Is the winter really over? When I see that the sun is shining outside and it’s a comfortable temperature¬† (what you call damn cold in September actually). Let’s hope the good weather is here to stay! Maybe politicians will get a good vibe from the early spring sun as well! Hopefully it makes them finally take decisions. We need it. Of course Mr Trump, Erdogan of Poetin don’t live in Western Europe, so they can’t share our early spring session and I doubt if these guys ever look to the early spring sun with this philosophy behind it…LOL. Do we want to be a president, king or emperor? Hell no!

Let us stay in our Volkswagen world, and do what we do best, serving VW enthusiasts for over thirty years with the most fine parts for your VW that you can wish for. And also this week is no other with a new BBT news, weekly brought to you on Friday.
