Question Where do I get replacement asbestos shingles?

Help! I need to find replacement shingles to match my 8 inch asbestos siding shingles.

My home is c. 1937 and I do not know when the shingles were put on the side of the house. They are all sound, not a chip or crack in any of them.

I am eliminating a bathroom window to install a shower, and I cannot find shingles to replace them. They are 8 inch with a straight bottom edge.

I know they quit making asbestos eons ago, but I hoped maybe there would be someone out there manufacturing something that I could use. I only need a few.

You won't find them, except maybe at a yard sale. Best bet would be to use an 8" innerseal siding and match the horizontal lines. Paint it to match your existing.
