Good afternoon everyone! Well today I wanted to show you all a project that I've been working on for a little while now. Well it all started when our friend Jeff Parker put up a few machines for sale via Facebook. Well, the first was this (before picture) of a Model 26. It was an okay looking machine, but it had been painted a long time ago in a blue and metallic light blue color that was very much non original. So Jeff and I discussed it and I bought the 26. It came in two boxes as it should because the handle is a one piece handle. So once I got all the parts and put it together and took it for a test drive, I decided to get to work putting her back to her Hoover-given colors, which for those wondering, I painted mine rustoleum gloss Kona Brown and satin nutmeg. So I took her all apart, painted every part what color it should have been and put her all back together. Hope you guys like her! Thanks for reading! -Karl
