Question porch lite repair

i have a porch lite thats original to my house (there is no paint under it, as opposed to th five layers i scraped off elsewhere) but the asbestos heat shield on the lite base(between the base and the bulbs) is but but a fond memory.what can i replace this with?, as everyone i have asked about this thinks i'm nuts and has no idea where to get some. i like the lamp,even though it's nothing special.

I don't know if this would work or not, but most fixtures these days use a layer of fiberglass insulation where they might have used asbestos previously.
