Got a HP 2648. Now what?

Jay wants one, has for a long long time.

I have a 2645 and a 2649G, but both are DOA. Jay wanted these
when he was here for VCF East, but time never allowed me to load
them into his trailer (which didn't have room anyway).

I was going to trade these to him just a few weeks ago, but I tried to
get any sign of life out of either of them, so I dropped the ball. These
are not in good enough shape to be worth shipping whole.

Both have mold on their CRT's.

When I got the 2648 given to me (with a 7440 plotter), I was going to
send it along to Jay, but.....
