Before i continued on. I had this 


                                                     

Started off by putting the cyclone all back together.



Then the motor and hooking the wires on the RIGHT way, putting the six screws back in.

The Kick plate on

Its starting to look like a DC01 now.



I put the cable threw the hole and hooked it all up.

No, don't strip that! I'll have it if you don't want it and can post! That's the DA001 style font, but the DC01 branding, so an early DC01!

Looks unfaded too. Don't break it for spares!

yeah I know but our hoover needs something to get it back to the way it was. I can't find anything  otherwise I would. but that's what our hoover looks like when it was new.

If it has a fixed soleplate, I'll buy that and the bin flap if you are breaking it.

I eventually made my mind up. The motor from our one went into that blue DC01 and is perfect now, Then bought a early DC01 off eBay not to long ago. And used the Parts to get it up to tip top condition. Ah, Perfect.
