Exhaust heat shield - remove or not remove

Hi

So this weekend I finished off fitting my integrated tail light, I bought a 19 option from ebay, although the gauge of the wiring is pretty low the rest of the product seems pretty decent, I guess time will tell.

Any way having fitted the tail light I've lost the OEM indicators and plastic surround but am left with the heat shield between the rear and exhaust sticking out like a sore thumb. (see pic) My question is do you think it's ok to go ahead and cut away the heat shield to get a cleaner look? Or do I risk melting some shi!t?

I removed mine and haven't had any issues in 9 years. I'm sure you'll be fine.
Mine is right next to the rear cowl too.

The roads were pretty mucky that day, and I didn't have time to give her a rinse after.

...If it had a bit more ground-clearance, I reckon it would look awesome with some offroad tyres.
