rust stains from finish nails
last year I installed some cedar siding using galvanized finished nails. I sealed the siding with and transparent oil finish. I am seeing some minor rust stains from these holes now, is there anything to prevent this in the future such as putting putty over the holes?. I just put up a fence and to facilitate it I used my nailgun to install finish nails to hold in place until I could go back and put screws in. now Im wondering if I have to pull all those boards and pull the nails out to prevent rust stains.
