LM convertible interior qtr panel shield ???

Does the LM convertible interior qtr panel use a shield? I can't remember and I don't see any evidence there was one in my tear down photos. Don't have the old panels anymore. The sheet metal has every hole sealed with dumb-dumb putty or sealer so not sure if necessary.

I know my couple uses them.

Yes - see attached pictures of my 65 LA built Corsa convertible, currently being reassembled.

I can look Tuesday, but I may have a pair of the convert shields.

Looks like were doing the same chore this weekend. Sorry, I meant the plastic / waxed paper shield between the cardboard of the vinyl qtr panel and the metal.

I think I answered my own question. Convertibles don't use the cardboard shield since everything on the metal side is already sealed. My coupe uses them and got confused.
