Paint fans

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering how do you remove the fan from the outside case for small fans like heatsink or memory fans?

they are glued in, youd snap the casing or the motor pcb before you got it out, just mask off the casing and spray paint it with light even coats.

I actually did this just today... weird
I got a Factory Finnish very easily. I used
Rust-Oleum Plastic Primer
1 coat.. waited 1 hour
then used
Rust-Oleum Satin White.
I showed my wife and she actually asked me which part I painted, lol
same rules apply as regular spray painting painting, im mearly just adding the fact that you need a plastic specific Primer.
No matter what anyone says, this is true.
Plastic, specially PVC, emits gasses. If the paint doesn't make a molecular bond to the plastic it will eventually bubble and chip, rub off. Plastic paint/primer bonds to plastic on a molecular level.

Rust-Oleum makes a all in one plastic paint that requires no primer, but it only comes in gloss. Satin sheen looks more like a typical fan blade.
