I must say that is a very thoughtful and generous gesture on your part, Yoeri!

pics in this post :)

and newsupdate:

the bed, once  cleared of garbage, didn't look like a 52 bed at all.
also the extra shock absorbers did loook like a 64.

after posting a pic on the KTr forum everyone was shure  -  this is a 64KD that lost it's KD part.

will take a little longer to restore , taken there isn' t that much info on it.
