WHAT A GREAT EVENT. (caps intentional) Thanks to those who put it together. The only thing that would have made it better is to go back again after lunch. You just can't take it all in in one pass. 
Sounds good. Hope I can make it this year.
Another possible resource is Hunter Willard. Walnut Cove, NC. Just north of Winston-Salem.
I have an unrestored KR with original strips. These photos basically confirm the instructions provided. While my strips don't go behind the wheel well trim I believe the intent is that they're trimmed tightly with no body color showing. Where the strips wrap at door edges/jamb they are trimmed where the quarter panel or door skin ends. In my case, the door skin is trimmed cleanly adjacent to the jamb but not so much at the front fender.

Here's a discussion from April that might be useful.

This is one I have. Seems to work good.
It's OK, I'm not in a hurry. It's just on my to-do list.

Just reading the subject line I knew this thread would get weird.
Yea Jeff, I meant starter delay. Late in the day and working with an old brain. I'll edit the post to correct so it doesn't lead anyone astray.
On the other point, no, it's a fastback and thanks for your efforts.
Yea, I know this looks like crap but that's how it is after 50+ years, that's why I'm here. Also, you'll notice the starter wiring is a little different, that's because of a RobbMc starter. I also know I'm missing the starter delay but that's for another day. I would like to clean this up but can't find any go-by pictures. In all pictures I find, this area is hidden by the air cleaner snorkel. If anyone has a clear picture of this area for a KR I'd appreciate seeing it.

Thanks in advance
Thanks for the info guys. Much appreciated.
I'm planning to restart a non-Ford (1973 455 Pontiac) after a 25+year sleep. I was warned that I should be concerned about valve stems breaking due to carbon that had previously built up on the stems causing the stem to weaken. This breaking may not occur right away but could be a few hundred miles later. Anyone have opinions on this?

Thanks in advance
