Post exterior siding

on an exterior wall higher than eight ft. with T-111 siding what is the proper way to install z flashing between the lower and upper courses?

Top of the Z behind the upper piece and the bottom of the Z out over the outside of the lower piece. Overlap the Z a bit where the Z strips meet along a run.
The idea is to keep water from getting behind or into the top of the lower sheet.
Good luck!

Only thing I would add is to leave a slight gap between the Z and the bottom of the upper 111 so some air can get into dry it out. Water will run down and "wick" in between the two.
