I went for a total repaint. Chrome and gloss black.

As you may be able to understand.




Replaced the cord.

A little black behind the manufacturers tag I thought would make it stand out more.

Left the badge the color the fan was when I got it. 

The best way I found to remove them stubborn plastic plugs without any damage. A drop of hot glue, wait for it to harden then pull then pluck off the glue.

The feet where in too bad of shape to save.

One area in back had to be fixed.

those were around for 1955-1957 i think, i have two. i like the green color since the neighbors had two of those when i was a kid. the different plastics fade to a different shade, but i still love them. Have a 10" 2020 as well, and a 4050 seventeen inch but just huge and you need a big room so i sold that one.... great for sleeping, thanks for saving another piece of history
