Day n°2 in Brasil … We set our trip further… today a hardware manufacturer, a stamping plant (where we were not allowed to take pictures sorry for that) and the Wolff bumper factory.
First the hardware factory… in Brazil most of the factories still work conventional as labor cost still allow… all the parts on our beetles been made conventional back in the day… PLC and CNC only came after VW seized Beetle production…
This company is no exception..here we see the forging of the rear axle nuts, nut just made on a lathe, or a mill, but really forged like it should, with this type of manufacturing BBT parts makes the difference!
The forging department… they produce valve adjusting screws, pins for fuel pump etc etc all that need to be forged, hardened or tempered… exactly the same way like VW used to make back in the day… even hardware is important for us!
And these are two injection machines, the green one push 2000tons! The white one in the back 1200 tons, jawadde! Every one of this machines “spit” out a bumper every 2,5 minutes! Plastic bumpers for modern cars only…:)
We bought (and sold) a complete 356 Porsche parts lot… and somebody had to work hard to load all and everything!
So all this will come to Europe, if you need any used 356 part, changes are LARGE its in this lot… we’re happily ready to direct You to the new owners who will receive this container somewhere in the beginning of December…
This week we like to take You along over some very handy BBT proud productions, and remind You we have those products ready for delivery out of our mighty BBT shelves…
Play safe… when your rear seats spring touch the poles on your battery You get an extremely nice firework You’re not exactly gonna like… these battery covers are exact copy of the original ones!

These stow away racks are perfect for any model of Beetle Ghia or type 3…… thousands sold and still very popular, don’t miss out on yours!

These Cupholders been especially designed by BBT for Split window buses (except Barndoors) an extreme cool add-on, and practical too! Dress up that split and give that Belgium Beer a place it belong, in a Belgian designed Beer holder! You only go for the best!
BBT is the worlds distributor for top quality Brake drums from OMC Italy. All OMC aircooled lines are almost distributed by BBT and we have a very healthy and prosperous cooperation with the factory. But also with production quantities and product development.
In our eyes OMC is the best brand of aircoolded VW drums money can buy, many large brake companies also choose OMC to produce their brake drums for other brands, if good enough for the big players we think they’re definitely good enough for us! …
We’re proud to follow the yellow factory boxes with OMC brand where possible. The fact we doubled turn over in this lines (from 6 to 12 pallets monthly) proves enough!
