    Do you mean the cover of the GPS? So you want to replace the GPS?

    No, the gps is renewed, but the area should be covered with a flexible rubber isolation / copper to avoid interference with other signals.

    Don't worry about it. It does very little to protect the GPS from RF noise.
    The best thing to do is to loop the FC to GPS cable through a Magnetic Toroid as close to the GPS end as will fit.
    This will act as a low pass filter for the RF on the cable.
    Modern GPS drones do not bother with that shield.
    If you must have one just use create one from some aluminium foil. Make sure you do not electrically ground the foil but keep it floating.
