Hi all, I need your help. I am about done with my burgundy body TriStar canister, but I need a replacement side badge. I believe it read: TriStar - IEC. It was chromed plastic that pressed into the side.

Please contact me.
Thank you.

The Hunt,,,

so far, I have not found the missing badge. One good thing is I am cleaning up in the process. I was surprised how much stuff was under the work bench. I need to put up some kind of barrier to prevent things from bouncing/flying under the bench. I will continue to look.

Today, I made contact with a source. I will know soon enough when the package arrives if this a replacement. "I will keep my fingers, crossed".

Shucks! Due to an apparent misunderstanding, I received the newer gel badge instead of the chromed plastic badge.

Back to square one. If anyone has or knows of a source, please contact me.

Thank you.

Don't you make a template and paint a logo on it. The majority of the vacuums are missing some lettering. I mean paint not stencil on. If you taped it off it would look cool. I'm not saying it's what you want but an option.
I wanted a kirby cord of a 510 vacuum listed for $50 plus shipping I offered $40 a higher fair price. If you message someone that wouldn't make a difference ask if it's a possibility.
Judy throwing out a few suggestions.

No, that won't work - painting

In addition to showing the brand, the emblem plugs 3 holes drilled into the side of the body. And the holes are there to mount the emblem.
