SN95 Inner Door Panels, were there ever cloth inserts?

I'm new to the Mustang world; picked up a low mileage '98 convertible last fall. Sadly I've discovered it has a cigarette burn in the drivers inner door panel. Haven't found a replacement yet, but I was wondering. During the '94 to '04 SN95 run, did Ford ever offer a "cloth" insert (see the area circled in the pic) on these door panels? I have tweed cloth seats, and I think it would look nice to match that on the door panels (if I could ever find the original seat material....). Wondering if there was a secondary plastic piece made to fit that shape/contour that I could get upholstered?

Upon additional searching on the internet I found a photo showing that area covered in perforated leather (or vinyl) "different" than the rest of the door...

I've not seen nor heard of cloth inserts on these cars. Was hoping that if someone had, they would have chimed in by now... I have to admit, I never even realized that Ford had offered different textures for that panel. I wonder if that was a matter of option choice, or if it only applied to certain years? FWIW, that "perforated leather/vinyl" is what I have on my '95, and the only option code on the build sheet related to interior trim is "000ZH ebony interior".

Do y’all think those panels are held on by glue or clips? One of mine on my ‘95 needs done TLC. I think I can just pop it off and recover it. No?

By "panel" do you mean the entire interior panel, or just the little semi-ovoid insert circled in yellow in post #1? I'm not sure how that little insert is attached.

The semi-ovoid. I bet glue.

Maybe try removing the whole interior panel, and see if you can spot the tips of any clips or fasteners on the back side in that area. Otherwise, yeah it's probably glue.

I have a spare drivers side panel. One of these days I’m gonna try and dissect and repair it.
