This bit is quite fiddly, the hose hole cover is laid on the surface, and immediately rolls up a bit and slips down...

ila_rendered

Then with your 3 hands, hold it still, stop the hose socket from falling out and fit the hose inlet assembly into place and screw it down!

ila_rendered

The carbon filter got a good vacuum off and was fitted

ila_rendered

Small tools now. Lint strips back on the upholstry tool

ila_rendered

All fitted!

ila_rendered

The tool door can go back on now. The whole finish is sprayed on, it's paint, so polished up really well, just like doing a car. Sadly there was a fair bit of actual damage here and there

ila_rendered

And that's the main vacuum done!

ila_rendered

Spent many hours getting all the paint off the cable

ila_rendered

Hose now! The plug pushes onto the hose itself, I gave the contacts a slight tweak to make better contact with the slip rings

ila_rendered

Fitted

ila_rendered

The outer trim can be clipped and screwed on now

ila_rendered

Up to the other end of the hose now, and the polished up control panel has its buttons fitted and is clipped to its PCB

ila_rendered

Then all the electronic internals are fitted

ila_rendered

The internal suction channel is laid in, which highlights how utterly vital having all the wires tucked away properly is. Still not 100% sure it's right, the hose is a bit stiff to rotate.

ila_rendered

Cover is screwed on, again 18 hands are needed to stop the internals moving about as you position the cover...

ila_rendered

Floorhead now! The locking bracket is screwed onto the neck

ila_rendered

Then the wires are fed in

Finally the main cover can go on!

ila_rendered

The latch is fitted to the wand

ila_rendered

And she is done!

Some car trim gel perked up the plastics

And here it is next to another little project I have to do, it's replacement!







We have an after video

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzcc1Lf0E3U" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzcc1Lf0E3U</a>

And then, I sold it! The new owner seems very pleased with it...

And there we go, the tale of when I owned a Miele Revolution 500!
