Painting Gentle Typhoons
I had took some images for reference, hope it will be useful for fellow forum members/modders who are keen in coloring their Gentle Typhoons.Removal of Sticker (voiding of warranty)
Use a lighter/ heat gun to heat up the stickers to ensure no residue left behind for easy removal of the sticker.Close Look at the C Clip
I used two tweezers and a magnet to remove the C Clips. Magnet is used to attract the C Clip it if the C Clip were to fly out (It does happens very often)
Holding onto the fan blade, I used one tweezer to hold one side of the C Clip and used the other to ply it open. Do note that the C Clip will be very likely to fly away so make sure get the magnet close to the C Clip when removing.
If you lose your C Clip = $20 down the drain. Dismantled Gentle Typhoons
After dismantling you will have the following parts. Pls keep them in zip lock bag to prevent any item lost.
- Gentle Typhoon Frame
- Gentle Typhoon Fan Blade
- 2 X Ball Bearing (one with fan blade, one removal from the rear of the fan frame)
- 1 X Spring
- 1 X C Clip
Completed Gentle Typhoon
After dismantling the fan blades, use the spray paint and paint the blades. One tip, paint the blades in thin layers. Wait for each layer to dry before applying the next.
After the blades are painted, fix the blade back to the fan frame. Do remember to use the magnet as well when fixing the C Clip.
Thank you for viewing.
