As for primer check your local car repair shop

Bumpers and Spoilers need to be primed too before they can be spray painted
They might even give you an almost empty can for free (it's not like you need a ton)

i tried them but they use primer powder and mix it with some chemicle or water maybe idk to make it liquid form and than put it in a big motor machine and spray primer on cars with a spray gun inside Air-Tight Car Oven so that's a no go for a little fan. For primer spray i think i need to be in other country than my own country

Those fans look pretty cool. My only concern would be their weight being off and not spinning properly. Plus, they are going to be thicker and heavier now...so they might not move as much air or spin as fast.

you could be right about the weight but it was a transparent fan and i compared it with a couple of other fans which are stock black which weight little heavy than this one + plus i applied very thin coats of paint which you can notice a little globe logo embossed on the fan center in the pic otherwise heavy coats of paint can mess up tiny logos easily i can tell coz i tried once before but lets hope for the best for its full spinning which is about 1200rpm i think i searched for tutorials on google and found that many people applied about 3 coats and they came up with positive results even using primer before and than paint. I will let you guys know if it will be successful or not in both cases

I've painted out ceiling fan blades before with a brush and wall paint. It worked and the weight didn't effect the slow turning fan even at it's fastest speed but a fan spinning anywhere near 2000 rpm will go one of two ways, work or slowly burn the bearing bad. Good luck and you may get lucky. Are you going to to do the same for the CPU cooler fan ??? I'm thinking that would be a bad move for temps could climb quickly if you aren't on top of the heat if the fan or fans stop.

No no im not going for CPU cooler for now i'm just experimenting on these fans which i got from market at dirt cheap price i'm practicing for now and my next target is to cut the side panel of my current PC case and install Acrylic Glass and than install a couple of UV lights which i ordered whenever i will have more free time

So here are the pics of my modded fan which is completed I managed to wash the each side of frame slowly one by one with water by covering the motor and LED's with scotch tape

After Washing


After fitting back the LED's to there slots ... see the sparkle LOL


After finishing everything i took 3rd pic on high capturing while it was spinning at full speed... oh where are the grill screws? LOL

I would say you did an excellent job. And the fact that they can spin full speed with no sign of vibration is a good sign. Now if you could only find those grill screws ! Tip: plastic baggie !
