Gound clip for headlight switch/wiper switch?

I am puttung my dash together & have an old dash for reference/parts. I was robbing some parts off it & noticed a metal clip that overlapped the monthsing location for the wiper & headlights switches. There was a ground wire riveted to it. My other dash didnt have this. Should I use it? I have all new wiring in the car. There are several ground straps in the harness in the dash area. I have console with gauges & indash tach if that matters. Scott

Headlights will work without it, but pretty sure you need it to ground the wiper switch.
