Do you also have the feeling there are only coming more wars in the world?
Seems like war is no solution because rarely ends.

Local people always are the real victims.
Our VW buses,  don’t they conduct enough messages of peace?

Political leaders should be driven in VW buses, they should not make war.
To make the buses dependable they can always call us.

Our aim is (and always will be) to bring better parts to give old Volkswagens eternity.
Welcome to the BBT News.


We extend our bus bumper line from our SWT program.
We already carried  the front bumper 66-67 “Diamond cut” HERE

Now we add the rear diamond cut bumper plus both slash cut bumpers.
BBT SWT bumpers come in L82 Silver White color, exactly like original.

0012-601 Bumper front – Bus 09/58-07/65 (Euro) Silver White SWT
0013-601 Bumper rear – Bus 09/58-07/65 (Euro) – Silver White SWT
0013-602 Bumper rear – Bus 08/65-07/67 (Euro) – Silver White SWT


 Running out of used always motivates our search for replacement.
Engine lid springs no different.

Our “used” boxes showed empty bottoms so the search was on.
Today we add  both missing engine lid springs for your Beetle.

Our complete Beetle & Bus line of engine lid springs HERE

BBT # 2303-110 can be used for Karman Ghia front and rear hood too.
Although original Ghia’s have a slightly larger diameter springwire so are little stronger.
This might result your Ghia hoods do not stay open that firm as intended.

2303-120 Engine lid spring – Beetle 08/64-07/67



As a wash out of our emergency brake handle line development we made our own dowel pin for the emergency brake cable hook up.

This dowel pin fits buses from 1960 all the way up to 1971.
Resulting in better prices and nicer quantities.

This week we had the big earthquake in Taiwan.
BBT has plenty connections  there and supplies from this beautiful country.

Especially the rural east Coast was hit hard, thanksGod the area with the lowest population.
Also, in capital Taipei and other cities there was damage.

But all the factories we work with seem to be ok and people are alive and kicking.
Nature is and stays unpredictable.

Classic Volkswagens do not have that kind a secret anymore for us.
Every week we’re just adding new products.

This week we let the sunshine in, if she comes out that is.
Welcome to the BBT News.

Spring is here, open your windows…

BBT adds low-cost Safari windows for your bus.
Front and rear opening windows for fresh air and cool looks.

Besides front we add for small window in small tailgate up to 1963,
and for wide window for 64 to 79 tailgates.

That is right, also for Bay window!
Deluxe large window for small tailgate -63 will follow later on this year.

We use polished high grade stainless steel for these safari window kits.
Polished stainless steel means small scratches or dull corners can be easy corrected by extra polishing.

All our Safari window kits come complete with all necessary hardware for easy mounting.
For these new kits we especially worked on price.

Our top-of-the-line Safari window kits HERE now leave you the choice  in quality.

More safari with these small rubbers.
These small rubbers go between your safari window catch and the safari window frame.

Original used on early frames, nice add on for all year’s frames.
VW never published on their exploded views.

We had to find them in the text of the (early) parts books, what we did…

Next week it will be  Easter.
Easter boosts always a spring feeling.

New life, new nature, new car season!
Is your ride ready for the season?

Let us help you with our new products….
…. for this week…. as every week.

Welcome to the BBT News.

The next two clutch discs are a direct replacement for your stock clutch discs.
Solid center means no central torsion springs to leave.

The center of the discs made from spring steel gives a little torsion, but from there you get full grip.
The lay out of the woven material is made for a stronger connection between flywheel and clutch mechanism.

The Heavy-Duty model is perfect for heavy loads or light competition.
BBT Bob tested this clutch disc in his 1959 SO 23 Westfalia on a 5000 km road trip through the Balkan in the summer of 2023.

The disc didn’t miss a grip, the whole trip.
While Bob is not exactly the driver to stay on the beaten path……

The “Kush Lock” disc is rather for competition from mild to wild.
Each clutch disc comes in 200mm diameter.

Our regular SACHS 200mm clutch disc HERE

BBT chooses “Filter King” for their fuel pressure regulator set ups.
Need better mileage? But a fuel pressure regulator doesn’t only do that.

Fuel pressure regulators give a correct pressure of your gas entering your carburetor(s).
That is much more important as one could think.

We tested many and the only one that really works is “Filter King”.
We now add  the fitting for 6mm fuel lines.

We make our “Filter King” fuel pressure set ups available for more applications.

BBT wishes you a splash in the spring weekend.
Finish that car and take it for a ride!

Still, we can travel quite a bit.
Visiting factories, discussing productions.

 After Germany we can honestly state Brazil is the second Volkswagen country in the world.
Brazil features the largest Volkswagen factory outside of Germany as well.

Although sharing a lot of parts with their European colleagues there are quiet some specific parts to Brazilian built Volkswagens.
The indicator switch is one of the unique features on Brazilian beetles and buses.

With the mass import from Brazilian Volkswagens into Europe lately and demand after specific spare parts, we decided to stock all model indicator switches.
Especially for these family members from far away.

If you have a Fusca (beetle) or a Kombi Clipper or Carat from Brazilian Heritage, chances are big we have the exact and correct indicator switch for you.
The differences are small sometimes, but we decided to stock the whole range, because your Brazilian beauty deserves nothing less.
