Fan motors were in working condition, but needed serious works to improve visual appearance.

Unfortunately, side plates were separated from radiator matrix due to corrosion.

We tested core and decided to recreate radiator.

Pressure test of the heater matrix revealed serious problem and we opted for new item.
