    So what's up with the fan? It was dead already before or it died in the modding process? I think you could still salvage the cone from it... Crazy glue rarely works properly :p

    I would use a dremel to cutl around the edges between the fan and cone heck since the fan is already broke start cutting liitle chunks of the fan off

    Top notch execution so far dude. Can't go wrong with the old turbine mod. Way to take apart an old beige breeze block like that and turn it into something rather more interesting!

    Oooh looking smoooth. I'm guessing its a bit of sanding, then painting? Sounds like you have a nice neighbour.
