1/4" at the shoulder or bed by 1/2" at the neck is a good minimum size. 5/16" by 9/16" or more will allow for a little more putty and perhaps a longer service life.

Welcome to the Forum.
I'm planning a trip to the UK: London, Birmingham & Shropshire. Where are you located, maybe I can invite myself to stop by your shop for a visit.

Have you tried steam-bending the shingles?
Who is the consultant?
I suggest asking the consultant for an alternate spec on the shingle that can be applied to the curve.

I would not use vinegar because it is acidic and can eat into the metal.
