Cool. I've removed all the clauking so the next step is to reclauk everything. After my interaction with silicone sealer... and the fact that the 33 year old Vulkem was still adhering well and flexible when I removed it, I gonna reseal with vulkem. Call me a traditionalist.
I thought about using a pressure washer, but even with the hose the white stuff went flying, sometimes a bit farther than I intended. If I get stripper residue on my 80 years old neighbor's roses... I'm a dead man. Not to mention they are great neighbors. They just shake their heads at my antics with the AS. LoL
