The salt will be the big enemy. When I was there a few years ago talking with the guys (and pulling off every hatch we could loosen to see what was inside) they said they still had to occasionally sweep up corrosion product from underneath. We offered to completely strip and clean and remove every trace of salt at no cost to the museum as our follow-on project to K7 so long as we could repair and run the engine too. You can guess the rest.
