In these challenging times we must do what it takes to protect ourselves, our beloved ones and show
solidarity to any other human around us especially those considered vulnerable! For those that are
blessed with a workshop, garage or man cave can hide in there, grabbing the opportunity to beat
boredom by spending time on theirs or their customers pride and joy..
For this week we like to include
our doorpanel clips.. Our assortment offers a variety of different clips for various models/years as
shown below. We offer quantity prices for those that are looking to stock up or want a better
price deal – so get in touch with our sales force!!

Of course we wouldn’t shout about the various doorpanel clips we have in the BBT assortment without
telling you about the numerous doorpanels we have available too. Below is a quick snapshot of some of
the door cards we have in stock. (Tip: Search our webshop on the following References – 0550/0551/0552)
Our last shout out goes to our Baywindow Cargo floors!! These are made exclusively for BBT by the same
manufacturer that made these panels for VW – Now try to beat that! They are as good as they can get,
perfect pressings and a spot on fit! 0891-760 for the left side & 0891-770 for the right side. They fit all 2ndgeneration buses between 07/67 & 07/79.
There’s no lockdown therapy as VW therapy
Hit the virus…hard!!
Waking up this morning to find out that our country is one step away from a lockdown… Corona seems like a war against unknown enemies… first thing we can think about is the complete lockdown from our friends in Italy. I think it is hard, but the only way to keep the spread of the virus under control.
In Belgium schools will close, bars and restaurants too and all events have been canceled (also our beloved Ninove VW show this Sunday, bummer) .Well I think we all have to help and show civil morality…. try to keep distance, if we stay one meter from each other a virus has so much less change to find his next host.
Wash hands after you touched whatever that can be touched by others as well, and if you have to cough, try to do it in absolutely NOBODIES direction…
Avoid places with many people together and again, keep distance…. together we will survive… meanwhile we can continue our Volkswagen parts as long as distribution channels stay open.
It might be a good alternative than anything else, finish your car!
To help with that we bring also this week new parts, VW therapy is the best in times of uncertainity….
For your vanagon T25/T3 we now have new ventilator motors.
Replace that old dusty, choking, creeping, stinking blower motor and spoil yourself with clean fresh air all over in your cabin and drivers compartment.
This is the lever that connects the rod of your clutch pedal with your clutch cable of your splitty bus.
It literally bolts to the clutch pedal rod and it hooks on the clutch cable with a special clip.
We sell the clip under BBT ref 0905-200
For the splittie bus we have this week something that’s almost always missing….
In 1963 the bus cab doors finally got a doorstop. You could let your doors stand open, while not open too far at the same time.
Today, so many years later, these door stops are many times worn out, just missing or bend because of disabuse…
The BBT doorstop fits left and right, so one part number for both sides
Various items have been removed from stock to make room for new ones. For some items there is only 1 left in stock.
So be quick, because GONE = GONE Prices excl. VAT
Convertible outer hood, vinyl, Beetle 54-07/5
So far so good, our hearts and feelings to all people effected by the virus, people who have family who suffer or are in hospital, people economically effected.
For sure the next couple of weeks will not be the most enjoyable, but together we’re strong. Let’s unite and fight together….
BBT News team wishes you an enjoyable and virus free weekend….
We want to share with you our latest developments.
Maybe You missed some updates but anyway we have a couple of new things in bus sheetmetal almost ready for production…
Do You know all the below?
Starting with the fresh airbox for the single cab pick up truck, something we’re very proud on!
The metal plate above the transmission, that keeps your fuel tank….
The package tray in the back
The inner sides in the rear corners.
These parts been approved now and will go in production shortly… get your reservations made on Frederik@BBT4vw.com
Corona leads the headlines. Besides it’s real sad for the people affected,it will have for sure a deep hawk into our economy. Also we, at BBT, had the first signs from suppliers this week, who couldn’t get raw material or semi products out of several countries… China is slow and countries like Iran are completely closed, only future will tell where this will end ….
Today we’re still proud to present what’s new in the BBT product line since this week….
A little focus on sheet metal this week for the bus… so many new numbers…:)
Let’s start with something we made as original and still leaves you the choice to “dress” you bus in any window configuration you want.
These right inner frames for the side windows of your splittie bus come in 3+1.
The frame for the rear side window is separate from the three in front of it …..
Bright engineering ! Thank you Volkswagen…:)
This exact panel for left side (if your bus is LHD) we stock under BBT ref 0890-232
If you have the panel above on the right side, your loading doors are on the left, like most RHD configurations. We have this panel ready for your two windows behind the cargo door.
For the right side we stock this panel under BBT ref 0890-235
If you want to make a double door, you need the left side and the right side in this configuration.
Some more pick up news too… we received this side panel for behind your treasure chest door.
Now available for left or right, LHD, or RHD or simply double treasure chest, you simply can make any required configuration with our panels….:)
We got also our first delivery of B-posts for the single cab pick up truck for the 55-63 model years…
They look like a piece of candy to us, these parts make your restoration so easy.
Last but not least this week we like to introduce you the D-post for the pick up trucks. Now we’re getting close to all panels for the pick up.
With the new season round the corner we want to take the opportunity to make a big shout out in March to check your fuel lines.
Each year we see devastating pictures on the world-wide web from cars burning down mostly due to old worn fuel lines. We know that
around this time of the year most of you ’petrol heads’ are starting to wake up your beloved classics. Give them a maintenance, clean the
interior, polish those gorgeous original or custom wheels .. so why not take a proper look in the engine bay and inspect the fuel lines. A good
way to check these is by taking the fuel hose in both hands with your thumbs pointing at each other and bending the hose (gently). Make sure
you have enough light and see if you can spot any cracks or even signs of old wearing rubber.. If you do – replace immediately! Depending on
the use of your vehicle we would recommend replacing your fuel lines every 2 year and if your car hardly gets any miles we would recommend
inspecting and or replacing them sooner.
And whilst you’re at it, why not replace the fuel filter at the same time. Don’t wait and think that you only need to replace it when you see sediment
in the filter. Some of it will be in between the filter itself. We recommend replacing this all together with the fuel hose.
Lastly, in case you need new clamps to secure your hose we supply them in various sizes from 8mm to 17mm.
(change the 2 digits behind the dash for the correct size)
Stay away from the Corona virus, stay healthy, and keep on buggin’…. BBT’s News team wishes you a relax and virus free weekend….
BBT and Auto Linea teamed up to improve our aluminum engine cases.
After a customer feedback and some “in-house” investigation we found out the clearance between rod bolts and cilinder sleeve in the engine case was kind a small.
Auto linea took our suggestion serious and updated the CNC machine software to enlarge the bespoke clearance… after test runs they send us this report. Thought this was cool to share with all of You….
BBT continuously works on a better product, therefore we evaluate your feedback a lot, and take it serious too!
