have you considered using a High Density Urethane (HDU) foam product ??
easy to sculpt, holds paint as well or better than wood, much, much lighter
to work with. comes in 4x8' sheet. extremely easy to cut and join together.
and it will never-ever rot !!!
pressure treated wood is extremely notorious for not holding paint.
once you get your plan of attack down, go up to the scalloped wood and take
some close up photos and print them out on a printer. this will give you the
reference you need in order to closely match the rest of the trim.
depending on what part of the country you are in, the HDU is available from
sign supply distributors. very highly recommend this product.
an install option would be for you to fabricate the trim boards to your satisfaction,
prime and paint accordingly, and pay a handyman or contractor to remove the existing
boards and install the new ones with construction adhesive and stainless screws.
from the looks of things, it may involve a man lift or scaffolding -
which may be beyond your skill level and comfort zone.
there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.
