Default Cedar garage doors



Here are a set of cedar garage doors thar are failing badly.
need to get them down to bare wood and retsain and seal
I know that standard stripping products will blacken the cedar so am I facing a long hard sand and scrape to get these to stain ready? The owner let the spar go too long without reaplying so i am wondering if you guys have any suggestions on the best way to get this done and any product recs. I have used the Zar ext poly water based on a front door recently and like the finish. May use that product on these doors. Thoughts? Thanks..

Id take some 60 grit on a palm sander to them. Skip the chemicals and brightener. They're not that big, a palm sander would get it back to new wood in no time.
