    I forgot to ask ... And what there otkidovaniya device cover? Two plates? Or something else?

  7. kypexin - 07.08.2010

    Yes, there are two plates, but thicker and softer than for example in the park, so the lid does not "shoots" and on me-I-yagenko so open. As in bakelite, I do not know yet.
