Gregory Macneil's article, "Getting Under Second Skins" focused on prepping and repainting the wood shingles discovered under old vinyl siding. He doesn't mention what he did with the old wood frames around the newer aluminum window sashes. I assume they were needing some repainting also. Any ideas how to do that safely when the surfaces aren't so large and flat?

Low Infrared heat does not vaporize lead in old paint or break glass. Speedheater Cobra from shoots infrared rays into tight spaces. Paint bubbles in a few seconds and scrapes off right away. Cover your window glass and aluminum/vinyl/wood sashes with foil or aluminum flashing.Then the rays don't hit the areas you don't want to heat.
