    Snelle levering, goed verpakt en alles ziet er prima uit alleen jammer dat de sluitverlichting van 44682 niet werkt doordat er wisselstroomwielen onder zitten. Misschien voor plaatsen eerst testen?

    Verdorie, daar moet ik over gekeken hebben. Als je geen aangepaste wielen hebt bezorg ik je wel een geïssoleerd asje per envelop. Groeten,

    This does not seem to me an insurmountable problem. The type of couplings were clearly visible in the photos. Hopefully easy to solve. Regards

  • Hi
    thanks for the item.
    I wish that seller had checked the item before shipping. Because the item was full of foam all over the item inside as well as outside. I had to use compressed air to clean it.
