Hi all,

I recently purchased a Lakewood RW-20 window fan that is functionally fantastic, but needs a bit of work cosmetically. Somewhere along the line someone repainted it with a brush, and painted over the badge. I've never seen one of these fans before so I'm not 100% certain what it's supposed to look like. I believe it is supposed to be off-white in color, but I don't know what the badge is supposed to look like.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to remove the paint from the badge without harming the badge itself, or have a picture of what the badge looks like so I can try to find another.

I'd also appreciate any information on the fan itself so I can pin down age, etc.

Thank you!

Allan-

Hey Mike - yes, Chris' Lakewood is beautiful! That got a lot of attention when it showed up at the NJ meet. I also got mine at the NJ meet. His is a different model though, and looks a bit different. I'm not sure they would have the same badge.
