Newsletter April 2016
A couple of days ago there were these horrible bomb attacks in Brussels and now I’m taking the time to write the preface of the spring newsletter. Deeply moved by the incidents so close to us ….In the first place our sympathy goes to the victims and their family, the stranded travelers and everyone who went through this misery … shame on you IS, all this suffering to innocent people! This has nothing to do with faith nor conviction, it’s a downright crime!
I was listening with incredibility to the political debate which took off. Some scapegoats must be assigned and we will know … anyway… isn’t that exactly what those terroristic idiots aim at after all ? Destabilizing our society ? It would be a good thing to join our forces on political and diplomatic matters. Then we would really show that senseless acts of violence have no use.
The stock market (except for the airline companies) reacted in a tranquil way. That’s good thing… don’t make it undermine our economy!
Let’s all take an example to our wonderful Volkswagen world… plenty of friendship and fellowship… and with the new season coming (collection cars drive just more during the summer than in the winter period). BBT is ready for a great challenge to supply all the necessary parts to our customers. Our purchase department is making a great job !
Let’s enjoy spring time, with splendid weather and marvelous cars!
Keep your (VW) faith!

The metal profile of the window sash clamps the window (with a rubber in between), this gives the fact the metal "sash" frame is under tension for whole of its life. Metal that's under tension wear out, as simple as that... call it "metal tiredness"... so after enough years of service the tension will fade from your window sash, mainly because of corrosion at the ends (that's where it starts mainly). Your window will not go down nicely anymore, will hook and turn... time to change the window sash... and now readily available at your nearest BBT dealer!

This buffer behind the window winder prevents damage to the upholstery of the door panels. Its important to install it between door panel and window winder, in the way they used to do in the factory.
Fire caused a by short-circuits can be prevented by fuse protection of the electricity. We have seen it enough, all electric appliances installed in your Volkswagen (or any other car/motorcycle), should by properly protected, such as USB chargers, GPS, cigarette lighters, radio or any other HiFi equipment, just name them, this loose fuse holder can be helpful and isnt even expensive. We like to contribute to your security as well as of your passengers.

Some VW's in the early sixties didn't got a Bosch distributor but a distributor from the Garbe-Lahmey brand, after we produced the ignition points for this little different distributor, we're also proud we can present here the rotor for this distributor! Readily available from BBT shelves.
BBT brings you finally a rotor for your late-model Beetle in original quality, or more likely even a notch better! This is real BBT quality we use on our own cars! No substitute!
There was a time that Bosch was the only brand for the electricity of your engine. Unfortunately due to many foreign and cheaper productions, the Bosch quality got worse. We now have the BERU alternative for you, high-quality, also made in Germany and it is the brand that we use on all BBT vehicles., if we may say so to our entire satisfaction. Beru works and Beru is strong! Highly recommended on behalf of the BBT team!

Buses destined for US market use to have several vent wings in the rear and middle side windows. Temperatures are quite high at the west coast and people could afford the luxury of some cooling (contrary to for instance Italy or Portugal where the price was more important). As many Bay window buses are now imported from the USA we have taken this seal into our assortment so that restorations can be executed in an authentic way.
