Very welcome @ this week’s Friday Product Update. This week was a very exciting one. We never ever saw more suppliers in a couple of days than this week. Very good contacts, very good prognosis and very good friendship we saw it all, for those who read this and we’ve meated; Thank you for being BBT’s supplier and hopefully we can continue to grow to one another to serve our market better and make the Volkswagen market a better one!
We have a couple of new items to show to you, that we thought they where interesting to get in our range…
First we like to show you the missing links. As you know we like to have a complete program. So we’re proud that we have now all lock sets with matching keys for all split window buses from 1955 all the way up to 1967.
The lock sets contain all the locks operated by the same key for all locks of your model year including the ignition lock.
These two missing ones have been added and are ready for delivery.
Go for one key solution now!
Other available lock sets for split window bus are ;
#0425-905 for 03/55 up to 07/58
#0425-910 for 08/58 up to 12/60
#0425-915 for 01/61 up to 07/63
#0425-920 for 07/63 up to 12/63
Another thing that we especially selected for you is the chrome bezel for the 1968 up to 1974 Euro Beetle taillight, or the church window type taillight as we call it in our native tongue.
We choose the best available quality on the market and are very proud to present this one here. Beware for cheaper inferior quality imitations….:)
Finally back in stock after too long unavailability. The brake adjusting gear is back to stay!

BBT FPU team wishes you all a very relaxed weekend, get those batteries loaded for another exciting week to come in the magic world of Volkswagen!
This week we have a couple of good new gaskets in stock and a cool repair piece for T3 rear trailing arms.
Brand new in our program because too many people don’t want a complete gasket set for just oil pump or generator stand gaskets… Now we have them separately and ready on our shelves for delivery.
We finally have found a good repair piece for your Vanagon T25/T3 rear trailing arms. This repair plate has a very nicely pre-welded hub to hold your spring. This repair piece saves you the money for a new trailing arm.
Caution! Not all tech inspections allow welding repairs on trailing arms, so better inquire first!
These fine products came back in stock this week and are again available !

Another batch of exciting product news this week, BBT’s FPU is written for you!
Bay window rear view mirrors looks pretty similar like regular late Beetle ones, but are completely different at the base… we decided that bus owners simply have the right on a correct and brand new (especially clean) inside rear view mirror. Replace that sunburned detoriated old scruffy pile of junk with one of our uber cool and exactly as original reproductions!
This is a super cool kit to mount the steering wheel on top of the steering column of your split window bus. Always missing, bend or completely worn out… this little hardware is a necessity on every bus to make your steering work like it should!
Get rid of the rattle! This gaskets sits under the gastank where the connection to the fuel hose sits… Very important besides eliminating the rattle is that your gastank don’t rub on to your body, what can give damage to your gastank… and we don’t want gastanks to start leaking, do we?
In our ever-expanding line of seat covers we just added the brown front seat covers for early bay window in brown basket wave vinyl, exactly like original. This set covers both front seats for a 1/3-2/3 configuration
We got a new delivery of our top-notch one piece 4140 Forged Chromoly Crankshafts, ready on our shelves for delivery!
We have had too many returns on certain fuel pumps. As quality is our major concerns we went around the table with the engineers from the factory and tinkered out a long-lasting solution. As not many people don’t understand what it takes to get model changes we included the drawings “before and after” for all of you to understand… This is what we do and what keeps us busy…:)
In short the factory changed the inside rods to get more play so they can’t grip anymore… problem solved…:)
We supply now a good quality mechanical fuel pump for the type 4 engine. These pumps are back in stock and we deliver now in a long-lasting quality that really works!
Hereunder the drawing of what is really changed… enjoy…:)
We have more fuel pump news this week!
The fuel pump is an important part for a proper functioning fuel supply. Heavy duty and a leaking fuel pump may lead to fire, whereas the fuel pump can get stuck after a long-term stop. BBT is always looking for high-quality solutions to replace damaged fuel pumps. This pump is a high-quality alternative for the existing cheaper # 1685-06, whereas # 1685-035 is a complement for 34 DinHP 1200cc engines defective fuel pumps build between 1960-1965. The fuel pumps are delivered each and come with 2 gaskets for the bakelite assembly foot included. The push rod for this pump is available under ref. BBT # 1684. The bakelite foot is available under BBT ref # 1690.
We also changed this design slightly as before the outlet touched the ignition, now the outlet points upward, what’s actually more easy to put the fuel line to your carburetor.
The BBT FPU team wish You all a wonderfull weekend! enjoy…
This week we have a bunch of new arrivals, some cool new Bus parts, but especially a whole array of Split window beetle parts…
In our sheet metal range there are two remarkable new arrivals!!
Let’s start this FPU with our brand new window frames for your splittie bus! They rust, bend , break, or are worn out, in other words they go wrong in many ways… and we offer now the perfect replacement parts, tested, fitted and well approved by the BBT team… ready for delivery from our shelves…
Now we also supply the professional made headlight wire tubes. Brand new production. This is a part which we’ve made in development for our complete new fenders up to 1959, that we hope to launch early next year.
And we also have a whole series of new top-notch products for the split window beetles this week… make your pick, they all fit, they have been made by people who know split window beetles very well, they fit perfectlyand look the whole deal!
Whew ! Finally back in stock, ball joint for Bay window, we’ve got now plenty, after a small problem at the manufacturer! But… we solved the problem, that’s what we do…:)
The BBT FPU team wishes you a lovely weekend!
We have now the inner front frame for the T 1 splittie bus available from the BBT shelves. These inner frames exist out of left and right A pillars, the bottom inner sections and the brace between the dashboard and the front panel…
All our panels have been stamped on cast tooling in all necessary steps exactly like VW used to do when they built your bus new. Whatever they tell you, cast tooling in the necessary steps is the only way to make parts right and guarantee a correct and continuous quality!
This frame consists out of our separate parts welded together on professional jigs, and parts have been individually test fitted on our own buses!
The front inner frame exist out of separate parts we sell here below…
The A posts are a work of long breath, we returned the samples twice with necessary remarks to the factory and they are now exactly like it should, exactly like VW made them when they made our buses new!
Watch the details, we went to the end! The very far end! Tested, and fitted on our own buses!
The new Airmighty came in, order yours now! Loads of show reports, from the ubercool Ben Pon meeting, and many more!
Our first batch sold faster as a lightening thunder, so we ordered a large second batch… the early bulkheads are again available, same quality and same price as the first badge!
BBT FPU team wishes you a cool weekend!
