With the addition of the speed control numbers I believe I have finished this FWEW BMY.
They look great over black powder.  :up: Thanks Lane!

I have the kidney version of this fan. It's awesome and currently my daily runner. Nice job on the restoration!

I love that powder coating. Do you do that yourself or do you have it done? Is it expensive? It makes for a flawless paint job. Love it.

Thanks....
I love the powder too! 

I did not do the powder though. I took it to a custom motorcycle shop; Crush at metroplexkustoms in Arlington, Tx did the work. It wasn't cheap but not outragious for the quality,. Just a schose over 200. He did a "powder primer" zinc based IIRC before the gloss black. I've done rattle can jobs on other fansI have been happy with but for this one I wanted something more durable so I bit the bullet and had a pro powder it. I am hooked on powder now so I am slowly kitting up to do it myself. The boss lady wants a new oven so I have a powder oven coming, just need to save the nickels for the rest. 

I have a junk parts broke kidney to practice on before I try to tackle a keeper. Still debating in my brain on whether to do the tank I just picked up. No cage badge so I am not to concerned with keeping original...

Finding these fans in Texas is a challenge. I probably pay too much but.......



sigh

This fan is a stunner and based on my (limited) experience one that is very hard to come by. I would absolutely pay the $200 for the powder coat job if I had a "special" fan. On black fans, I have been using an appliance epoxy paint which is more durable than regular spray paint. It takes longer to dry (a full day) but like I said, it is more durable than regular spray paint. By special I mean something along the lines of a pancake fan which I haven't found yet. But then I still work for a living (65 years old this year) and don't have the time to devote to go to a lot of flea markets and estate sales.
