Hi guys, I recently bought my first fan, Diehl Airflow, and very happy to have found this site.  I have a few newbie questions and was hoping someone could help me out with.  
Is this the original paint scheme?  If it's not, does anyone know what color this fan would have been when it was new?  

Not sure if I will keep the fan or not, so do most people usually go with the original paint scheme for resell purposes or just repaint it as they see fit?    

Thanks,
Danny

I prefer to restore my fans as they were originally, but I tend to use "poetic license" when it comes to "bling" such as polished brass. If I am restoring a fan for someone else and they want a non original color to match their decor, or whatever, that is what I give them.
