Friday Product Update


***They’re in! ***Available now!! ***Order yours right away!***

We have now the inner front frame for the T 1 splittie bus available  from the BBT shelves. These inner frames exist out of left and right A pillars, the bottom inner sections and the brace between the dashboard and the front panel…

All  our panels have been stamped on cast tooling in all necessary steps exactly like VW used to do when they built your bus new. Whatever they tell you, cast tooling in the necessary steps is the only way to make parts right and guarantee a correct and continuous quality!

This frame consists out of our separate parts welded together on professional jigs, and parts have been individually test fitted on our own buses!

***Buy BBT because there’s no substitute for Quality!***

Friday Product Update

This week a couple of cool new additions for the bullet indicator enthusiast.

Bullet (or nipple) indicators been, used on buses after semaphores till 07/63. US regulations made Volkswagen to stop the production of cars with semaphores sooner as the European regulations. The bullet indicator was the first step in indicator progress to create more visibility and there with a safer driving.

Beetles for US market had also bullet indicators from  mid 55 till end of oval but the size is different like the bus ones…

We have now finished the housing and the base plate.

Lenses for these indicators been already available under BBT ref 0616-490, we continue to finish the bulbholder and will have complete bullet indicators available soon…

Let’s start this FPU with a new seat belt in our line; these are meant to be used on middle benches of the VW bus. They have extra length so you can go back to the floor for easy mounting. Both sides come with adjustable lengths, so you can always place the buckle in the middle, where it has to close.

These seat belts come with the necessary E-marks what means they have been accepted for all technical inspections and insurance coverage in Europe.

For the rear seat we already supplied the shorter version under BBT ref 0573-100 that you can mount on the rear parcel shelf of your bus.
