Much time and effort went into the following restoration. Please enjoy the following pics!


Before her trip to the Beauty Parlor (aka Le Benche Grindiere Salon and Spa).

She's not a natural blonde; it's only a temporary wig until she finds her original hair color of Sirocco...

Very nice!

The sanitronic 7s are pretty hard to find. I've only seen a few that had most original or all original parts.

that looks great!

Did you change any parts on it (such as the belt lifter), or did they just clean up that good??

Excellent job!  Did you do all of the polishing by hand?

Excellent job!!! When you get the correct bag, you'll be amazed at how its appearance really comes to life.

Congratulations on a beautiful restoration!   With an original bag and cord it will be picture-perfect!

Thank you for your kind words! I did not change any parts on it; she is the way she arrived less the dirt and grime. The Bench Grinder works wonders on Kirbys! It definitely brings out that shine!


I believe the cord on this one is original; it is a shiny copper color. I could be wrong though!

Me too! Kirby's always look so nice even before they are cleaned up. Even better after.
