993 Carrera 2 (1996) : Impeller fan colour?

 
Here is today's "anorak" question from me!
 
The paint (a light beige colour) on the blades on my impeller fan has started to lift in places - caused, it would seem, by the beginnings of corrosion of the blade metal. It looks like this will be a fan-off and powder coat repaint. My question is; what was the original impeller fan colour? Was it beige as per my car.
 
Any and all assistance would be much appreciated.
 
Thanks, John

John Dymond

    Strange how one doesn't notice things.  I'd assumed mine was silver but just checked and I guess you could describe as beige 
    probably a carefully optimized colour for heat dispersion!

    It’s not silver(!) - defo a ‘beige’ colour, probably very similar to the top engine cover of a late 944S2 
    This is the original colour... (now, where’s my anorak? ;-)

    You obviously havent seen a new one? Zermatt silver is spot on, it has come up before and you should be able to find the info with a google!

    Amazing what heat and air will do to the colour isnt it?

    Zermat silver


    That looks correct when looking at mine as it definitely has a gold hue which I believe Zermatt does.

    Yes, quite a while ago. Enjoyed that car and drove about 40K miles in it but kept the better car :- )
