I was in the same spot 2 years ago, I was going to put the new vinyl over
the asbestes. When you start nailing thru the old siding it will chip off
sections and you'll have loose piece. Best thing is to remove the old.
I put down a tarp and with a bar pryed them off. It goes fast. Wear a mask.
The local dump did take it because its a solid asbestoes.
You will have to go back over to remove all the nails. Under mine was a nice
wood siding. Its a little extra work but I recommend removeing it
