280SE Exhaust Question

It's a 72, 280SE inline six, and my question is about the heat shields for the exhaust system.
For the 'silencer' at the end of the car, still has it's heat shield in place
But, is there also supposed to be another for/above the 'resonator'?
If so, it's gone missing. Are they available, should you have it?
Thanks for your help.

the resonator is also called the center muffler , the correct name is resonator , the one at rear is the muffler , there should be a shield , look under car , you should see the mounting points , if i recall the shield mostly goes over the pipes , it is long and narrow .

All the exhaust silencers should have heat shields or the floor panels do get too warm for comfort.
