Product update

BBT News

Is the end of the super powers near? President Erdogan from Turkey seems at least on his way back by at last elections. But is that important for the VW industry I hear you say… maybe you’re right, maybe it’s not that important, however, Turkish economy struggles with the high inflation and is a real important automotive manufacturing country. Let’s wait and see if things will pick up again and how they will… It might be a good source for certain items in the future again… hopefully…:)

Meanwhile the spring is there and our warehouse is super busy. This first week of April we had days with double workforce in our goods out dept packing orders. Just to get it all done. That was after we came across there were orders longer as 48 hours not packed yet…

From now on all orders will be packed within 48 hr even if we have the cleaning lady  to help! We will provide this fast service no substitutes! From last Tuesday on, that’s the rule, no exceptions. There’s a whole plan and schedule behind to make it happen… So now we’re very excited to get all your lovely orders out in no time! Thanks for all your lovely orders by the way. Without your lovely orders we didn’t have anything to pack at all! So every order is a lovely order to us.

Let’s see what we have new in our candy shop this week…

If you change your generator into an alternator for more power to your battery, there is a  chance your inlet manifold is too short. The acceleration pump of your carb will push against the alternator body. Sounds familiar? Same thing when you want to eliminate the smoke valve rev limiter on your 1500cc splitty bus.

Now we provide the solution  as we stock the carburetor spacers from now on. They come in two sizes, for the 28/30 & 31 pict carbs we have a 25mm thick spacer and for the 34Pict carbs we stock a 9mm spacer for you.

These little spacers can help you saving big and precious time. You should have one of each in your workshop as standard equipment. You will need them  sooner or later

While replacing floor plates often the battery holder is overseen. This holder is welded on the floor plate. Well maybe it’s not too bad anymore to oversee the old rusty crusty battery holder and just replace with our brand new one.

Securing a battery is a very important job. For very important jobs you need very good quality brackets. Here’s your answer to that… brand new and readily available in a very good quality…

Back in stock after way too long being unavailable, or at least unavailable in an acceptable quality. All at once the supplier changed the design and the place from the outlet. We didn’t agree with that and bugged supplier so long till he made them back like they should be. Outlets properly and exactly like your original tank. Quality and fit are so important to each other. Well we’re very happy we did it again and happy we have them back on the shelves for you… Sometimes is being a stubborn a good quality, or at least it helps…:)

Finally we found a substitute for these state of the art wheel housings for all years bay window buses. We used to buy from VW do Brazil, but when they quit our supply, we had to find another supplier. Well we found a supplier and he produces these wheel housings in a way we like a lot!

So back available and ready on our shelves for immediate delivery.
