Kato 3043 EF64-0

The Class EF64 (EF64形) is a 6-axle (Bo-Bo-Bo wheel arrangement) DC electric locomotive type operated on passenger and freight services in Japan since 1964. This is an old model from Kato, easy to convert to DCC as there is room enough for any thin decoder without the need of sanding or cutting the housing:

First of all isolate the motor plates and strips using Kapton tape:

Cut the positive leads of led that will be soldered to the function wires of the decoder:

Fix the decoder in place with double sided tape and route the wires to solder, in the photo you can check the exact position of each one:
