Dude, that just looks awesome! I'm loving the fact that your using an old vacuum. It's a great way to recycle the old thing. I can't wait to see what this looks like when it's completely finished.

My grandmother used to have a vaccuum very similar to that one... man I wish I knew if that old thing was still lying around here. I haven't seen it in years, though, I'm afraid it got thrown out a long while back. If I find it though, I'm so trying this!

The center piece was made with a part of a toy (hHelicopter) and a reading head of video-tapes. I added part of pvc pipe.

Yes, I hope you'll find it!!
