J channel

We recently moved our small cottage onto poured foundation with a knee wall, the original cottage was covered in siding, we can't match the siding and don't want to reside the entire place, so we have decided to go with vertical siding that matches the soffits and trim. My question is does anyone make a double J channel to connect regular siding to vertical siding?

There are trim details called T and H channels but I don't personally care for them.

In a horizontal application, they fill up with goop and can be an issue.

I would trim it out via step flashing and regular J/starter trim.

Where have you looked for this siding?
If you've only been to the box stores then your going to be limited to just a few choices.
Look up siding in the yellow pages, a real siding supply company is what you need.
It's rare when I can not match siding up.
Got a picture?
I also hate to see H molding used when someone is adding an addition or doing something like enclosing a garage door, looks to DIY to me.

I can provide a pic, not sure how to post pics here? The siding is probably 40 years old, wouldn't new stuff look different since it hasn't had sun and weather for 40 years? Thoughts?

Thanks Guys!
