I would view the heat shield as an important piece of equipment. It might be OK in the winter, but come summer exhaust heat will be radiating into the cabin of the car. It could damage and or melt the carpet and padding. You especially want to maintain any shielding around the gas tank. I would just do what it took to fix it back. Removal would be a mistake.
