So i thought i would update the progress on the U2716, here it is before fix www.vacuumland.org/cgi-bin/TD/TD-...

And here it is after.
I still need a bulb and lower cord hook and i am waiting for the height adjustment thats in the mail!
Unfortunately due to the plastic being ABS over time this has started to yellow.
Originally this would of been a white colour i think Hoover called it "Steller White" correct me if i am wrong.
This machine was the middle of the range the top of the line would of been the U2718 which was a metallic blue and had Auto-flex.
