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!
This week a couple of cool new additions for the bullet indicator enthusiast.
Bullet (or nipple) indicators been, used on buses after semaphores till 07/63. US regulations made Volkswagen to stop the production of cars with semaphores sooner as the European regulations. The bullet indicator was the first step in indicator progress to create more visibility and there with a safer driving.
Beetles for US market had also bullet indicators from mid 55 till end of oval but the size is different like the bus ones…
We have now finished the housing and the base plate.
Lenses for these indicators been already available under BBT ref 0616-490, we continue to finish the bulbholder and will have complete bullet indicators available soon…
BBT FPU team wish You a beautiful weekend!
