It did turn out nice. You should paint power head in first couple photos. I'd say hose too but that would be a waste. The hose matches the handle and the paint will last too. Congrats on your new old beauty.

Antoine, nice work on your Compact. Only work left that I can see that needs to be done is your floor brush needs a new bumper & you need a new dusting brush.

Also, just so you know, if you want to improve your Compact's performance & filtration, use a HEPA Cloth Kenmore 5055 bag in it instead of the paper liners. Just take off the cardboard collar, cut open the seam closest to the collar & line the cloth bag with it. Greatly improves filtration & airflow lasts much longer between bag changes.

love the color, I just saw one of these on CL a few days ago....but more sea-greenish....was cheap too. I tried to look it up on youtube to learn more but didn't really find much. I like the styling
