BBT News

In Europe everything seems to ply relatively back to normal. The rest of the world is still fighting against Corona big time.
Contradictory the numbers are going up on the world scale.

One and another make that parts supply out of certain parts of Asia and also from South America are seriously delayed.
Thinking of our business and commitments to our customers it  feels like sad, but realizing what human tragedies are hiding behind this virus is way worse.

Let’s try and ban that crazy virus ! Let’s hope all people will heal soon and after that we can start back  to normal.
On a world scale we are  definitely not back to normal.

Nevertheless also this week we bring you a bunch of new products. Corona doesn’t make us freeze in a little corner.
It makes us creative and full of energy to fight against the virus, but also to make our VW world a better place and hopefully we can make it a better world everywhere.

For your split window bus we made all models door locking mechanisms up to 1963 (64-67 will follow shortly).
We used extreme accuracy to make these locking mechanisms exactly like original and are very happy with our results.

This is a perfect replacement for an original worn out locking mechanism and will help just anybody to make a perfect restoration.
We choose to make the entire assembly at once, to be sure that all parts correspond to each other.

No discussion about what fits to what, it’s a one piece replace everything.
Because of the quantity we made, we could push the price real low.

This is really top quality for a ultra-low price, easy comparable with NOS.
Very happy that we can bring you such a top product for such an affordable price.

If you own or you’re restoring a late ’62 or ’63 bus you will have noticed that this model has some unique features. As such this bus also sports one year only spindles.

As you may be aware, spindles need maintenance and depending on what life your bus had, it may be time to replace and improve the working of these important parts of your front running gear.

Over the years we found that  particularly for these spindles, it was hard to find any parts at all. The shaft on these king pins can wear out over time and it’s important that these are checked and refurbished/replaced when there’s too much play in them.

As such BBT has made an effort in developing and manufacturing the upper and lower king pins to ensure that your bus has quality replacements. These kin pins come with needle bearings and bush.

1337-504  – Upper King pin with needle bearing – Bus 08/62-07/63

1337-505 – Lower king pin with needle bearing – Bus 08/62-07/63

Another product that we want to put in the spotlights are the wooden slats for the canopy, After years of use and age they may need repair or replacement due to wood decay.

At BBT we have the perfect replacement slats available as a kit. We have these for single & double cab for both split and bay. Of course if you’re looking to replace the whole lot including the slats on the bed, we can help you out too.

Have a look on our webshop and enter 4875 in the search bar to find our selection of pick-up hoops and slats.

And of course if you’re after a special part or can’t find what you’re looking for – email us on or call +32 (0)3 633 22 22.

BBT news wishes you a very enjoyable weekend, and for all Covid 19 victims worldwide a speedy and especially easy recovery!

In Belgium as in most parts of the world the lockdown measures have been released dramatically… seems they got the virus under control in most part of the world, but then there’s a new outbreak in South Korea and a mortality raise in Sweden…. We don’t think the pandemic will be forgotten soon, but as said earlier we will have to learn to live with it.

Well as long as we can wrench on our beloved Volkswagens, we will find a way to live together with the Corona virus and survive.
After all our little passion survived the Hi-Tech crisis in 2001 and bank crisis in 2008-2009, and now the Corona crisis in 2020… So hey we’re here to stay…

To enjoy that stay we, at BBT News, bring you the updates of our products weekly… Every Friday… So let’s see what BBT offers you this week as an extra….

We bring you the reverse light for the late split & early bay window bus.

This reverse light was mainly on your bus under M code M47 or for early bay window also under M524, M601 or M24 and so optional equipment for sure.

If your bus has the cut out you can replace it, but if your bus came from the factory without it wasn’t equipped with this option.
Of course, you can always cut the holes and install yourself. In worst case we can get you the template where to cut the hole.

Many times eaten by rust or just missing this unit is fairly inexpensive and looks just great…
No electric components work as new electrical components on a classic Volkswagen.

We also add this week the missing member to our seat padding family.

BBT is one of the world largest seat padding distributors for classis Volkswagens with huge inventory and very competitive pricing.
We missed this seat padding for walk through buses built between 1963 and 1967 for the right front seat (passenger side for LHD configurations)

It’s always a good moment when you can make a family (or group) of products more complete….
