One method/trick we've done is to make a horiz cut,losing rotted siding......then install a thick'ish,bevel'd drip cap(looks like water table brick,can be milled from PTP 2x4)to cover PTP 2x's that are run horiz.
The trick is to get the amt of PTP showing below,to get the "scale" right.Too low(2x6)and you don't really get a nice look.Too high(multiple 2x10's/12's)and it looks goofy as well.But get it right and its impressive.You can run an exposed,face side rabbit at dr trim.Do a Z flash under siding,lipped as far as you want on drip ledge......we usually don't cvr whole ledge.BW
Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.
