Default Noctua fans: Can the frame be painted?

Can the house ( frame ) of Noctua case fans be painted?

right now I got a white/red theme going on inside my case.
Planning to add an extra fan inside and upgrade the exhaust fan on my case. But Im not a big fan of the tan color?
Would the fans need to be taken out? Would this affect the fan?

Im am NOT going to paint the actual fan itself.

Thanks everyone.

*** Are Noctua fans PWM? Or can the RPM only be adjusted with the 3 RPM 3 different connectors given with the fan?

Thanks everyone.

They make separate PWM models. Painting the fan would require disassembly of the fan itself and I don't recommend doing that.
