Bulkhead drinks tray. What year did they change?

I remember they had different radius ends, not sure if the differed in other aspects, but can’t remember what year the changes were?

The drinks tray changed around 62/3 depending in the market? when the spare wheel well depth changed. So bench seat rising sun pattern in the spare wheel well pressing square corners shallow depth alloy top frame.. This went to deeper alloy frame with the 1/3 2/3 seats risen sun spare wheel well deeper pressing and rounder alloy frame corners.
Then in 67? The alloy top frame had the rubber insert?

I had an idea in my head, just didn’t know the differences and year changed etc. to know if if might work or not? Might need to look for some pics of early ones to see the differences…
