That sounds like a great remedy, Daniel! Think I'll load up the MTD mower and go to Collinsville. My friend up there has had his JD down and been working a lot lately. Think he could use a bit of help. Give me some seat time!

BIL had a spare scotchbrite pad, so my plan was to prep my Allis rims for painting. But not sure now. That big dinner has left me pretty lazy! LOL I may go out in a while, but right now I'm gonna crash for a bit.

I could have sworn I posted this the other day, but here goes. I prefer PPG "Shopline" series acrylic enamel, and I'm using "Masterpro Wet Look" hardener.

I know you did, but was it in this thread?
Do we need to retrain you on pics, too?

OK Kenny, here's your pic! lol I just have some work under the big windows, then foam sheet the top side. After that it's siding time.

Daniel, Your work looks great. Hope this heat wave doesn't slow you down on finishing the siding.

Oh, it has slowed me plenty, but I keep hacking at it. Framing around those octagonal windows takes forever in a non standard built house, plus it's gonna be challenging putting the J-channel around those 8 sides!! Luckily the octagonal gable vents are plastic with built in J-channel, so they should be easy. I may try to finish the foam sheeting tomorrow.
I'm not putting in new soffit panels, as they still have decent color & no damage, so I'm also using the old J-channel under them.

Daniel, It almost looks like you have had a fire at one time. Looks like smoke damage in the pictures.

I hate to say that is bug smut! Kind of hated to post pics of it because of all the bug stains on the wood. Man, when I pulled that old siding from the original wood clapboard....it covered me in dust & bug crap. Siding is a lot like carpet. Until you take it up, you have no idea how much dirt & crud it is hiding.
When I started this project, it was in the Fall, and tons of ladybugs making home for the winter rained down on me, in my shirt.....everywhere. I'm sealing it up pretty well, so I hope not to have so many bugs making it into the house from here on out.
