1968 Glove Box Light Lens?

My '68 Bel Air station wagon has a factory installed glove box light...

Is there supposed to be a lens in the glove box for the light to shine through or just a die cut hole in the top of the box liner?

I have seen a lens for sale and advertised as 1968 Impala Glove Box Light Lens. The seller says the lens is 2 1/4" diameter. My original glove box liner does have a 3/4" die cut hole in the top...I always assumed this was for a hint of light to shine through...

Please clarify...If you have pics, that would be great!

Thank you,

Gary

There is no lens in the glove box. The bulb just shines though the hole in the cardboard liner. I believe the lens you mentioned that's available is for the console light in a Super Sport or Caprice. Don S
