Oz that looks great .......I tend to like much lighter colors so they don't darken the light coming in the window. I had two of those in 12" two speed, Jeff Rusnak has one and Rob Duffy has the other. I had several 16's and a bunch of 20" models as well...they sure don't make em like they used to

Fan looks great, I saw it in person when Mike first got it. So much work.
What a transition! I have the perfect window picked out....

Amazing job Mike. When you can make a window fan look that cool, you've done something!
