Got this from Chris Kelly at my BBQ last summer and got a motor for it from Charles Tedrick and it has sat waiting to get cleaned. Before pictures and after... pretty gunky. Extra panels attached from a two-tone beige/tan later model, they will go with the right fan i have in the basement. Will use this one in the front guest room this summer.

It's nice to see the fan coming together. I have 3 or 4 of them in the attic, plus 2 vikings and a 24 inch lau. I either need more attic windows or less belt drivers lol.I have a nice factory stand for that Homart too if you need one :thumbup

The Homart colors were always something that I've wondered about.  In my memory there was a gray, a tan or beige, a pale green and a  light coral. Understandably they may have changed over the years, but was i imagining those last two colors??
