Steam boiler replacement Princeton NJ

They had this fairly young (1995) direct vented Burnham IN5. The boiler was sooo badly rotted that all but one section had two fist sized holes in it. I had told her that I was afraid to touch it in fear it may crumble lol. I wish I had pics of the old boiler but the mess of removing it and my hands forget it. EDR was 287 and she wanted a new installed radiator in her 1st floor bathroom right off the kitchen which had no heat either, so I put a Burnham slenderized 24 EDR rad in bringing total EDR to 311. So in went a Weil McLain EG40. We also replaced all the wet returns as I knew they'd be clogged, and when I cut them open I couldn't believe water actually returned back to the boiler.
