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.

BBT News

Wow, what a week, it looked like a rollercoaster more as a week full of VW parts. And do we like rollercoasters? You bet!

The euro goes down, the dollar goes up, Mr Trump doesn’t get money for “his” wall, Chinese or Russian government could try to spread propaganda for next Belgian elections in May, still no Brexit, the youth strikes for climate each Thursday afternoon, will they continue during holidays soon to come? Without mentioning they fly every other month or so on holidays themselves, it’s nice to see this big engagement of the young people. We didn’t experience it anymore since May 1968, did we? If you study all that, we don’t understand why people still watch soaps on Netflix. Real life is so much more exciting! We’re enjoying full force, come  and join us…:)

And our VW life is even more exciting! The BBT train is driving hard, non stop. Also this week we have several new products to present to you. You make us keep on going!

Big issue we had with the manufacturer of our early beetle & bus door handles . Totally unsatisfied with the quality for a while, they wanted to make even worse. NOT with BBT, we want it better, so simply we couldn’t come to an agreement. New supply was searched and located!

This makes BBT ref 0425-50 is no longer available.

Our new door handles for your beloved bus are top-notch! They feel and look like original. Extreme high quality and actually as original.

They even come with the correct key!

Door handles up to 1961 are for the doors without recess for the door handle. They feature a high base with a long “hook” to touch the lock. They’re used for beetles up to 1955 and buses up to 1961.

The door handles from 61-63 are for the doors with stamped recess for your door handles. They feature a flat base and short hook, easy to recognize!

0425-525 Door latch – Bus -07/61, Beetle 07/55  passenger side, without keys TQ

0425-535 Door latch – Bus 08/61-11/63 , passenger side, without keys TQ

Because we do love the splittie buses so much, we also add the 15 inch bus wheel to our range this week. They go from Post barndoor (April 1955) all the way up to December 1963 when VW decided 14 inch was enough for your bus.

Wheels look like original, and are finished as you can expect from a steel wheel, nicely primered ready to paint in your favourite color.

Sold each.

2564-215 Wheel standard – 4.5 x 15 – Bus 1955-12/63 – grey painted

Wintertime, winterQ, wintercold, winterwet, wintersnow… guess we’re really landed in winterwonderworld… Time to rework all what couldn’t be done in the busy spring, summer or months of the fall… reorganising warehouses, reorganising our car department, finishing some big project cars, you name it, we’re on to it.

It’s time for big projects, and therefore we bring you this week another huge inventory of new sheet metal for your bus, including the roof with the sliding roof.

Top BBT production made in Germany. After the old tooling broke on previous production we decided to tool up again for this popular rubber. Easy was different we rejected at least 5 samples… If we do something, we only do it good, stubborn as we are, and therefore we keep going till total satisfaction… and we succeeded!

We made this license light seal EXACTLY like original, we compared with all other reproductions on the market, we test fit on a dozen of different cars. Ours is the only one reaching OUR expectations.

We’re proud we could go this far and have reached the perfection for this seal.
If you go for inferior, it’s your own responsibility. We told you the perfection is on the market.
Check for the small printed BBT logo on the rubber to assure that you have the real deal. Our logo is placed to recognise but is invisible once installed.

Beware for cheap (or expensive ) imitations!!

0748-1 License light seal TQ – Beetle 10/52-07/57 – BBT

It was not an easy move, but we convinced ZF/TRWVarga to start production back up for the rear bus wheel cylinder.

We raised our quantities until they couldn’t refuse anymore…:)

Proud we can offer again to the same good old price in the same great quality.
