Finished this one up a few days ago. Gave it a good cleaning. Sand blasted the painted parts.Wanted to paint it the factory color but this is what I came up with. When stripping the base the name tag went with it so I bought some water slide paper from Amazon.I took a picture of the tag before it came off. Used my ink jet printer to make a new one. First time I did this. Didn't come out too bad. Polished up the aluminum blade and steel chromed grill. Replaced the one speed switch and wiring. Runs very smooth.

The fan was given to me not one that I would have bought. But hey beggars can't be choosers. It was fun tinkering around with it. Thanks guys for kind comments.

Very nice job!
That was one of my first fans I collected.  (22 yrs ago)
You're lucky there was any decal left.
Happy Fanning!

Very nice fan! The color and slide came out great. Is this the heater fan version?
