I didn't see any more 'info' on your origina post but I last left you with a question regarding the cedar stain mfgr.
rabbits and squirrels chewing on ceder siding? - linda 05:29:54 6/12/98 (4) Good Grief! - Jay J 08:52:35 6/12/98 (3) Still chewing : stain was oil based - linda 05:04:42 6/15/98 (2) Linda: Is This Vogel? - Jay J 10:04:23 6/15/98 (0) Hmmmm ... - Jay J 08:43:46 6/15/98 (0)
Please update me (us) on where you left off. Is Vogel able to help you? Are they in Colorado? Have you tried any other ideas and what are they?
