Default running without brake backing plate?

latest snag in my rear disc conversion, i never even noticed 1 side had no backing plate on it.

i was at the junkyard and looking at getting one but i did not bring the necissary tools to get all the stuff off layered on top if it off.

so 2 questions, i searched but found nothing on these:

is it ok to run your disc brakes without the backing plate/dust cover deal? (i have a temp bracket in place so the ebrake cables cant rub on the rotor)

and will DA backing plates fit on DC/civic trailing arms because all thats in my local scrapyard are ****ing DA's haha.

Its just a splash shield, its not needed. Here in eastern canada you'd be hard pressed to find a civic that still has them, they rot off from the salt and don't get replaced.

I think it is also meant to duct fresh air in for cooling purposes, if you dont run hard then you should be ok.

well dude its just a cx so i think overheating the brakes would be quite a challenge either way.

damn for 20 bucks im a little pissed i spent half and hour trying to pull one off a disgusting junkyard DA. good to know. i did at least manage to piece together a rear sway bar so it wasnt a wasted trip.

and we dont salt roads in colorado, they pretty much just used sand and chemicals. so no rust, just paint chips come spring time. my shield did not rust off or anything, it was just plain not there on one of the trailing arms i got for my conversion.
i do plan to replace it regardless, just this has been more effort and i need a breather before i work on this car again haha.

thanks for the replies guys

77777, would it be possible to get a MAP sensor reading from you on a fully warmed up idle at your high altitude please Sir if you have time, you will need a digital multimeter, it needs to be in the one volt DC range, I would like to see what high altitude does to these things. Glad you got something out of the trip.
