BBT News

Spring is in the air, love is everywhere… come on old hippies with all your cool VW buses, get things moving, or how unbelievable it is that after wintertime just a little bit of sun can boost your energy so much. This year that first sun came early. Half of February, hallelujah! Yes the sun is a gift from the Gods, in all religions, even in ours! And do we love it? You bet! Soaking up sunlight boosts your vitamin D and that is directly responsible for your “Feel Good” hormones… To help with this we bring you this week the complete Samba roof, to convert your bus into a driving vitamin D generator, ah!

Finally arrived the first run of the complete Samba roofs, wowh what a hit! If you want one be quick as they’re almost already sold out , and we had many! More will follow soon however, we’ve got them now in continuous production. Bad roof? Why don’t you use one of our roofs? We made these roofs especially to save more buses. And get more fun (and vitamin D) out of existing buses!

We also supply all ragtop parts, separate or in kit, you can find by clicking here

Same time with the roofs we bring you also the inner reinforcements for the skylights as a spare part. Did you know that every bus with double doors or with sliding roof has these reinforcements. Or shall we say, should have? Well now we offer you the solution !

Also brand new for this week are the hinges for your splittie bus cargo doors. Replace that bent, plied or worn out cargo door hinge with high quality BBT reproduction hinges that are 100% made as VW used to make them back in the day! No substitutes but real replacement top quality parts, that’s what your splittie deserves, nothing less!

After too long being out of stock we finally received  the pre oct 52 shock absorbers  for the split window back in stock. These shocks are just a notch shorter as the later models and therefore pretty special on their own. Of course we got you covered and supply these now from stock.

The undersides for the late model heater channels came back in this week too. Exactly like original these are top of the bill for a serious restoration. Back available now from a longer as normal out of stock.

Early Baywindow steering boxes have no secrets anymore for us, we have all parts available now!

BBT teamed up and brought you the worm for the early Bay window steering box. Once we had the worm ready we came through the fitting process that our pig pens  didn’t have correct dimensions… back to the drawing boards and looking for a reliable partner we have the pig pen with the correct measurements, radius and angles, and especially with the correct hardness as well!

Because of our development we could lower the price of the Pig pens at once and have them now @ real sharp prices! …

Sometimes its simply not good enough to our standards and we like to improve, its our nature and its in BBT’s DNA.

Nothing else with the Pop Out hinge for your splittie bus, not satisfied with what we could find on the market we decided we let make simply better, and we succeeded.

Made in Belgium, they’re top quality and we do offer them even at a lower price as the poor ones before.

Get the best, do the test! Order yours now….

Is the winter really over? When I see that the sun is shining outside and it’s a comfortable temperature  (what you call damn cold in September actually). Let’s hope the good weather is here to stay! Maybe politicians will get a good vibe from the early spring sun as well! Hopefully it makes them finally take decisions. We need it. Of course Mr Trump, Erdogan of Poetin don’t live in Western Europe, so they can’t share our early spring session and I doubt if these guys ever look to the early spring sun with this philosophy behind it…LOL. Do we want to be a president, king or emperor? Hell no!

Let us stay in our Volkswagen world, and do what we do best, serving VW enthusiasts for over thirty years with the most fine parts for your VW that you can wish for. And also this week is no other with a new BBT news, weekly brought to you on Friday.
