Friday Product Update

Only one new product this week, but it’s an important one!
This is the little clip that hold the dashboard cluster into your Bay window bus dashboard! .
We made this product simply because we had a LOT of demands for used parts… These days are over now (and our used stocks down to zero) so we can easily supply these clips brand new in a real good quality… problem solved. We  can all mount our dashboard clusters again as it should.
Sold each!
7530-500 Dashboard clip – Bus 08/67-07/79
This week we managed to get finally back some stock of the German seals we’ve been missing for so long, hard to convince the supplier, but finally he supplied again!

Friday Product Update

Welcome to the BBT Friday Product Update where we also this week present a couple of brand new additions to our ever-growing parts program for your classic Volkswagen.

For the Vintage lovers we have added this week the ivory radio knobs to play these Vintage tunes on your car radio in style!

We supply these knobs with extra adjusting sleeves, so they will fit most Vintage car radios. These radio knobs do come in the classic (pre 67) VW button style to match perfectly with other switches in your car.

We stock the ivory ones and can supply the white and black version of this product on special order.

Sold in a set of one pair and all necessary hardware and even a small allen key to fix the buttons exactly to perfection!

After long research and looking for a while for a correct supplier, we finished these new brake lines in all correctness!

These brake lines guide the brake fluid meticulously between your brake fluid reservoir and the master cylinder from your Bay window bus. Very often they suffered from heat and weather elements or just went old and cracky and so are no longer trustworthy and reliable, what they really should be. We give you here the possibility to replace them with an correct replacement part. Our brake lines are made to resist brake fluid. This is NOT your ordinary garden hose!!

Looks, feels and smells like original!

As always we predict that brake systems are the most important thing to sort out on classic cars.  It really matters. If your engine dies that’s one thing, but if your brakes fail you can get in a lot of trouble!

Prevent your brake system from failing. It starts with a good and thorough inspection at least once a year. If you doubt about certain parts, don’t hesitate but replace them at once. This can cost lives, maybe not yours but others too! Brakes are no “play zone”!

Three models to choose from….

1208-140 Brake line reservoir to master cylinder 81cm Bus 08/67-07/72
1208-160 Brake line reservoir to master cylinder (servo) 60cm Bus 08/72-07/79
1208-170 Brake line reservoir to master cylinder (no servo) 15cm Bus 08/72-07/79

This tube is the long metal tube that goes under your bus from front to rear to guide the generated heat of your heat exchangers the front cabin. This tube is indispensable for a good working heater system in ANY bus made between 55 and 72. Fits split and early bay windows, all models from deluxe, panels, pick ups and trucks.

If not rusted out, many times this tube is missing or totally dented. We offer the perfect replacement restoration product here! 

We supply as well the insulation that originally covers the heating tube system .You can find it here under BBT ref 1098-500

1097-650 Heating tube central – Bus 03/55 -07/72
