1952-1956 K and KH
Note: the 1953 Standard Solo option is covered separately

Here we will describe the correct finishes for the K-model parts.
We've divided the parts into the sections as they occur in the Spare Parts Catalogs.

“MS” has painstakingly compiled the K-model finishes
based on the research he has done while restoring his 1956 KH.

We need other folks to corroborate his results, particularly for the 1952-1953 K's.

If you disagree with anything here, please post on the Forums.
