After the heat wave of last week it looked like everything came down this week, everybody was so relaxed, maybe still licking one’s wounds from the sunburn…:)

We, @ BBT HQ, continued to unpack more sheet metal… The people in the warehouse liked it a lot when it was 15°  less warm than last week and worked hard, very hard! We’re close to getting each single piece of sheet metal in stock which Volkswagen ever made to build a VW bus. So whatever part is rusty or rotten, we shall have the replacement part and if we don’t have it, it will come soon! Normally the aim is to finish this entire project by the end of the year!

So let us introduce the C Post (behind the cargo door) and the D post next to the tailgate and also the front chassis member, especially that last part is a mastercraft of engineering…

What a wonderful week we had in Western Europe… the flowers and the bee’s out in full force… most historical temperature records broken… Did you eat enough ice cream? Well we did!! Thanks to one of our customers who brought a bunch of ice cream for the BBT workers… his order was out first that day…:)

UK has a new pro Brexit prime minister listening to the name Boris Johnson. Ivanka Trump, the smartest girl from the White House, congratulated him as prime minister from Royal Kinston. Was that Kingston of Jamaica? Or rather that small city Royal Kingston upon Thames somewhere IN Great Britain, just South of London? Anyway, or she can’t write without typos (anybody surprised?) or she doesn’t have her geography right ?

Mr .Boris Johnson wants to leave the EU October 31 with or without deal… Congratulations Mr Johnson, history books will remember you for sure, but more than likely not in a very positive way. It would be sad to build a wall between us and all our friends in the UK…

What a week… with another round of extreme tweets from Mr President Trump. Our local Freeway entry closed for two months because of roadworks and a record on orders with most BBT workers absent ever…. it keeps people busy you know….:)

But we managed, and we got all orders out on time or about, we hired new people faster as ever and succeeded to get everything done… ah that’s different from Mr Trump… We really fix things, don’t just tweet about it…..:)

This week we also have a cool array of new products and a couple of long missing back orders that came in… let’s start and present these goodies…

First we like to present you the late-model headlight bowl for Split window bus. The reason why Volkswagen changed the general shape of the headlight bowl late in 1962 was only to gain more leg room. We get you the perfect reproduction, 100% equal in every form and dimension…

No less than 4 times we shipped these samples back to the factory with all kind of remarks, now they have all been addressed  and the result is stunning and perfect exactly like original. This is the kind of part that makes us really happy, very happy.

0185-200 Headlight bowl – Bus 12/62-07/67 TQ



Next we have the new wheel housings for the rear that came in as well. Perfect fit and form as you are used from our sheet metal parts, extensively test fitted and not approved till all details proved correct. Another top quality part that will replace an original without leaving any traces….

Two models to choose from 55-62 and 62-67…

Finished in the best invented coating ever as on all BBT made sheet metal, silver weld through primer. no need to grind off, just “weld through”. Amazing…


0890-328 Wheelhouse rear left – Bus 03/55-07/62
0890-338 Wheelhouse rear right – Bus 03/55-07/62



0890-329 Wheelhouse rear left – Bus 08/62-07/67
0890-339 Wheelhouse rear right – Bus 08/62-07/67




We got these gaskets finally back in stock for your 1.9 Wasserboxer T25/T3 vanagon carburetor set up. Ready for immediate delivery, order yours now!

2135-100 Gasket under carburetor 34 Pict-5


After way too long being away from our shelves our super economy electric fuel pumps are back in stock. A “small” production problem turned out to be ian astonishing long delivery time. But we’re back now and have them ready available at our ever low low prices… get yours ordered now.
