I am restoring a model 1205. Does anyone know where I can get blue paint to match the original color? It started with replacing the motor and I figured while it was apart, I'd paint it. Thanks.

Hi Clayton,

I happened upon this site (called "") awhile ago, and I know this guy restores vintage Electroluxes. Perhaps you could give him a buzz, and ask him what the paint specs are for the 1205?

Hope this helps!

I have a friend who owns an auto body repair shop. He's been very helpful in helping to find matching paints, prep tips, etc. You might try taking the main vacuum body to a body shop and ask for help/suggestions regarding paint if the above tip doesn't pan out.
