Nice work so far.  That vaccuum cleaner makes an excellent base for a custom jetpack build like this.  Keep the pics coming!

WOW!  This looks amazing!  And you weren't joking when you said that Vacuum was old...I'm pretty sure they stopped making those before I was born...  ;D

This is another excellent example of how one man's trash is another man's treasure.  Great job!!
