Question Tips on removing header heat shield?

Hey all,

with cold weather here and lots of time on my hands, I was wanting to remove my SVT header heat shield and paint it with a hi-temp enamel. The question is, I was wondering if it is possible to remove the heat shield from the engine compartment. It looks like it is wedged in there real tight and if I have to remove other parts to wiggle it out, it might not be worth the hassle...

Also, there are only 5 bolts, right? 4 across the top and one at the bottom/front (behind the radiator), correct?

Any tips would be appreciated...
