BBT News

Why an old Volkswagen, you ask?
Well, they may not have high-tech bells and whistles.

But they have character.
Something we all crave.

Even more than an air conditioner on a bloody hot day.
So, get in that rusty beetle or hippie bus and drive it around happily.

Turn a smile on people’s faces wherever you go.
Something we can use more than ever in these weird times.

To keep your icon on the road BBT brings you more and better parts.
Every week, over and over again.

Welcome to BBT News.

We decided it was time for more accurate splash pans for that splittie bus.
We bring you splash pans that do fit better for the different model years.

There was a ton minor differences over the years.
But most we could streamline into two models.

We have the 55-89 model to cover the early buses.
Most work we put in to the 60-66 model.

For the one year only 1967 model or with a dual circuit brake master cylinder you need a sleeve where the brake light switch peaks out.

The sleeve is quite easy to make.
There for we do not grave an extra part nr for it for now.

This is a proud addition to our Silver Weld Through program.

Out of deep in the world of VW engine builders we a had the request to add the Maxi 26 Full Flow Oil Pumps.
Maxi 26 In & Out Full Flow Oil Pumps provide a way to operate your engine “Full Flow” without the inconvenience and cost of drilling and tapping your engine case.

Maxi 26 In & Out Full Flow Oil Pumps are manufactured with large 3/8″ inlet and outlets for unrestricted, high volume oil flow.
The aluminum alloy used in manufacturing the housing matches the temperature characteristics of the engine case to help reduce leaks and oil loss.

Keyed 9 tooth 26mm drive gear and blueprinted specs help provide an oil system that will greatly reduce oil temperature and increase engine life.

The Maxi 26 In & Out 6061 T-6 billet cover is anodized in black, CNC engraved, and will accept 3/8″ NPT fittings HERE

Seems fall is over in Western Europe.
First freezing cold is a fact.

Hopefully, the freezing takes the rain away for a while.
We, at BBT, do not take anything away…..

….we bring you our product updates and new arrivals.
Just like any other week.

Welcome to the BBT News


Split window beetles have a different type of molding, dull nerved aluminum that is only polished, not anodized as later models.

The profile of these moldings requires a specific clip.
Not available anymore since decades we bring them back.

The clip is close to the later model but has flat foots where sliding into the molding.
Made from a special spring steel it holds the molding by tension.

After rejection of the first production, we are proud to say these are now exactly as we wanted them and exactly as they should be.

Reversed engineered from a handful NOS ones that BBT Bob found on one of his trips.

Clips for later model wide molding you find HERE

First come, first served.

Once they are gone, they do not come back.

Halloween is all about fake horror.
Poor replacement parts for your Volkswagen is real horror.

Rely on good parts, well developed, for an easy VW life.
Let us show you what is new this week to keep that horror away.

Welcome @ BBT News.

Late Bay Window front bumper sits on a deformation panel welded under your front panel.
BBT makes the correct replacement deformation panel with the flat front for the late Bay bumpers HERE

The end pieces to connect the deformation panels to the A pillars are separate.
The 74-79 end pieces are already longer available HERE

We now  bring you the 1973 end pieces.

That is right the first year of this set up was a one year only replaced already in 1974.
The end pieces for the 1973 only deformation panel had an upright border, already eliminated for the 1974 model year.

0891-223 Deformation panel end plate left – Bus 08/73-07/79
0891-224 Deformation panel end plate right – Bus 08/72-07/73


This spacer ring sits on a type 4 engine between crankshaft flange and cooling fan.
When missing the cooling fan sits too deep, resulting in a bad V-belt alignment.

Missing or simply lost, we now have  a brand-new component to replace.
Finished with the long search for a good used one, we bring you the solution.

For type 1 engines you find the washer for the crank shaft pulley HERE

1934-230 Ring crankshaft flange – Type4


All 1300cc AR engine code engines and late model 1600cc AS engine codes have inlet manifolds with dual pre-heater tubes.
Dual pre-heater tubes give a better manifold heating to prevent your engine stalling from a frozen manifold on chilly days.

Engines with these manifolds need specific double block of plates to close the gaps between pre-heater tubes, cylinder covers and rear engine tin.
The block off plates for dual pre-heater tubes need specific insulation in between their two halves.

Always missing BBT brings you brand new insulation kits, to mount between upper and lower part on these block off plates.
Our kits consist out of four pieces, all you need to seal both left and right block off plates.

Heater riser insulation kit for single pre-heater tube engines you find HERE

1057-260 Heat riser insulation kit – Type1 double preheating

This week we like to present you what is new in BBT just like any other week.
Every Friday we give you insight in our new products, product updates and some backorders.

Welcome to  the BBT News

Let us cover up that hack in your dash.
Many beetles suffer from a hacked dashboard for a DIN size radio installation.

A big fat radio in your dash is not that nice look in a vintage car so many want to bring the hole back to original size.
The original radio hole in a beetle dashboard with its pressed lip and four tabs is not that easy to reconstruct.

BBT now brings the solution  with this brand dashboard repair panel.
A 21 x 10cm plate stamped and finished with the correct original radio hole.

Exactly like original.
Now you can weld this repair plate nicely into your dashboard for that smooth look, or to install that cool period vintage radio.

Your dashboard is what you see the most driving your car.
Enjoy ocular peace of mind from your original looking dashboard again.

All other BBT radio related accessories, antennas, and block off plates you find HERE

Early model Volkswagens used double spindle nuts with locking washers in between with a pressure washer to the outer wheel bearing.
Now we introduce the self-locking washer for early beetle like the later model style.

Forged nuts ensure the high quality needed.
Stamped in pressure washer eliminates the separate retaining washer.

All in one self-locking nuts keep you away from the puzzle of double nuts, locking and retaining washers.

So much easier to install as original set up.
Self-locking spindle nuts are stamped D & E where E is for the Left side and D for the Right side.

The entire BBT family of spindle nuts and locking washers HERE

Deluxe buses should have chrome wipers.
A small but, oh so nice detail.

Give your bus that shiny deluxe effect with our brand-new stainless blades and arms.
The wiper leg is 5.5mm wide than the stronger late model buses.

As the size of the wiper shaft hole is the same these will fit ALL year split window bus.
The sliding hole in the wiper matches perfectly to the width of the shaft.
