I didn't really nail in the panels, I nailed in the loose pieces that were
holding the panels in.  Some of them were loose enough to let me see around
them to the outdoors, but not any more!  Plus as humid as it is around here,
they should have been swollen tight.  Now they are painted and ready for at
least another year.
