Thank you, I appreciate all the help you personally devote in these threads.

For anyone looking for a very expandable caulk.. the Tower Tech 2 worked wonders. Much better than the DAP Dynaflex.

This was the solution.

After pulling them off, cutting new pieces and then priming ALL sides, followed by cedar galvanized anti-split nails (after I pre-drilled the nail holes to prevent cedar splitting)
