Newsletter July 2016
Just back from California spending one week of Volkswagen fun! Nevertheless I’ve got some mixed feelings about certain meetings. Some gatherings are past of the high point, whereas a couple of new or more recent events are booming. Dynamics is the key word to meetings where a real ‘ignition’ power has been inserted. They go at full speed.
Meetings and gatherings are crucial to our (VW) industry. Without them there wouldn’t be many old Volkswagens driving around and furthermore they are a fine reason to achieve the deadlines!
You can compare it with our market segment. Good management and dynamics can make the difference between a fine working VW shop or a bad going shop…keep the spirit and be creative, those are the only advices I can give you!
There are several big VW events scheduled. We’ll have a stand on Le Bug Show at the historical race circuit of Spa Francorchamps. I hope we’ll meet each other on one of these occasions. Chatting among Volkswagens is always a nice thing to do, isn’t it?
Keep the VW faith!
As from 1 July 2016 prices may be adjusted in between, resulting from the fluctuating world market (exchange rate, change of supplier, production etc.). We’ll do our best to maintain prices stable for 3 months whenever possible, but we prefer to increase our prices instead of stopping delivery of certain parts. The new prices will immediately be modified in our web shop. This implies that the price of a product in our web shop will always be applied. Of course, we’ll do our upmost to prevent price increases, though sometimes we do not have another choice.
We thank you for your comprehension.

This T-latch looks just the same as the T-latch of an old beetle engine lid, however it is completely different.

Bay window buses have a double brake fluid reservoir, one of them is placed directly on the master cylinder which is connected with a higher placed filling reservoir. These reservoirs are nowadays often hardened and weary mainly resulting from the quality of the plastic used in the seventies in combination with the influences of a strong product such as brake fluid. Now we have a perfect alternative for the reservoirs placed directly on the master cylinders and you can replace your old reservoir by a complete new one for a safe brake feeling!

This ground strap makes sure the ground stays connected to your steering column all over your steering coupler, necessary for a proper working horn. Maybe you dont live in India or Indonesia where horns are 100% necessary to survive in traffic, but a proper working horn is always a very nice feature on ANY car. Or as my quote always says; when the horn works the car must be ok!
If you have a 5 speed T25/T3 Vanagon you'd better make sure these gear selector guides are in a good or perfect condition and fit. These babies adjust the play in your gear shift (mounted down below next to the gearshifter) and make sure you cant go too far left or right and all gears shift well worn out or missing? No problem, BBT offers you the perfect replacement part!

We like to introduce the seals that sit over and under the fuel injector. They will fit on each Bosch fuel injection injector used on a classic Volkswagen, Beetle, Bus, Type 3 and Type 4 models. With the recent import of many late bay window buses is the quest for fuel injection parts rising up. We try to find as much as we can, this is for sure a nice addition a must to have in stock for every self respecting Classic VW workshop!
