soot damage .. Lightning strike..

Posted by Chuk Gleason on January 25th, 2003 02:09 PM

Several months ago (last August) I had a lightning strike in my yard, which zipped down a couple of trees, then jumped over to the buried wire for my dog's 'invisible fence' and then traveled inside and blew the controller off the wall, burning up the wire outside and the wire from the controller to the little wall transformer powering it. Left lots of 'char' marks on the wall where the power wire was.

Is there any way to clean these marks off, short of replacing the paneling?? I didn't find it for a while, that's why it's taken me so long to ask the question.. A quick scrub with a wet rag and laundry detergent did nothing, as well as Goo-Gone.
