Re: Installing gutters AFTER installing the drip edge
Here on the west coast I've never, in all my years, seen a 1x2 under the lip of the shingle along a gutter line (gables, yes ), nor gutter spacers, nor painted fascia behind a gutter, and I've worked on everything from the 1800's to current day.
