"Please do not take this wrong, Tim Daily, but the product you link to is meant to assist in the removal of gasketed auto components and the gaskets  therein. As soon as you remove it from a controlled locus - valve cover - and use it in an open…"

"Sure, you had to qualify "won't wear down the existing paint" on the last bit. I would have suggested either a flame-thrower or acetone (in about 5 gallon drums) to get rid of that sillycone. Okay. Seriously there will be no…"

Hello Alsie if the siding is a flat pattern then we would make it or bend it on a break. It's a lost art but a good restore shop should be able to match then paint to match. The back grain is what you match . If it's the yoder round pattern then you should be able to find it.
