Default Prepping cracks due to weathering in wood before prime/paint

Hi all,

Project I am working on where wood window sill is weathered. Unsure how to treat going forward. Replacement of sill not an option for owner. Sill appears sound, just weathered.

See pics below.











Please advise?

Cheers,
Chris

Prime wood copper II, throw some caulking (dynaflex), then first coat it, Then use a skim coat of either bondo, our dynapatch, then finish.

Irrelevant maybe. But that is a odd install of a replacement window. They set it way far back for some reason.
It now needs really an extension jam to cover the grooves that held the sash there on the side to look finished. And the sill is now a lot more surface area exposed than should be. And that xtra part of the sill is most likely level. It will not shed water very well.

A bad install IMO. Backwards.

+1 on the ABATRON, INC. A lot of times I will mix up a batch of fiberglass resin to stiffen wood fibers.

Is this your home? Pretty sure you're no professional painter.

Followed by Rot Fix to fill the gaps and skimmed with cellulose fiber filler, then blocked flat:
