As far as cleaning goes....not sure what I can try to use to remove the spots. I don't think there is anything I can use.
Iíd replace the panels before Iíd paint them.

All of the channels, corners and other prep work is done, thatís most of the work. Just replacing the panels is easy and would probably cost less than you think.

Your options are pretty limited at this point.

1) Replace it.
2) Live with it.
3) Paint it.

Iíve have only seen a couple of painted vinyl houses and I wasnít impressed. The seam movement is an issue. If you paint it this summer I guarantee next winter you wonít like what you see. Defiantly donít change colors.

what would most people do who are qualified to make a professional, intelligent decision in this case?

If you don‘t like a polka dotted house then “Replace the Siding”.

I’ll be looking forward to your new thread this winter on...

“what to do about all of the unpainted vertical stripes on my painted vinyl siding”?
