I really love my Compact C9 vacuum.Works so well long hose long cord strong suction and amazing air flow.Whit the rebuilt power nozzle grooms the carpet very well,the NOS original hose made huge improvement old hose was split.It has enviro care paper bag and new cloth bag and filter suction is wow.I also repainted the vacuum last summer not original or perfect but looks alot better.My grand ma had one (rip) .And now i have my own i love my Compact C9 i only wish my power nozzle label was blue instead of gold but thats a minor detail.Also i have many different floor tool and attachments for my Compact C9 i have the original floor tool crevice tool upholstery tool and other floor tool that fits depending on the job i switch it up .

I still love that color on the motor, so rich and glossy. What was the brand and name of the color on the paint container?

I actually like the gold on the PN. But if you are dead set about the color, Maybe you can do some careful painters taping and block out a part of the gold label, paint the remaining areas blue and let the gold be the accent color leaving the section with the script/wording, gold.
