No Dave, never use sandpaper on siding with grain like that, look at the flat flash spot. Six or seven of those spots like those and you are replacing some siding. Use a wire brush in this condition!

Wouldn't heating damage the paint, though? It seems kind of impractical to me. But if it works, then hey, I'll try it!
